Is getting your contractor’s license really worth it? If you’re handy with a saw and a hammer, you might think it’s unnecessary to become a licensed contractor. However, getting your contractor’s license involves a lot more than a piece of paper. Here’s a brief look at the advantages of earning your contractor’s license with help from Arizona Contractor License Center:
While it’s true that some unlicensed contractors can secure work by undercutting licensed contractors, more and more homeowners are getting fed up with the dishonest dealings and lack of professionalism from unlicensed contractors. Also, businesses and government entities almost always skip over unlicensed contractors in favor of licensed ones. By becoming a licensed contractor, you can vastly increase your number of potential projects.
Becoming a licensed contractor isn’t simply about appeasing the Arizona state government. As you prepare for the exam, you’ll learn valuable information on how to safely tackle a variety of building projects. This isn’t just important for keeping yourself safe, but for keeping your whole team safe from common construction hazards. Even if you think you have a pretty good handle on safety, you’ll be surprised by how much you’ll learn from the test preparation process.
Greater Chance of Success
It’s much easier to obey the law when you’re a licensed contractor. Unlicensed contractors must have the phrase “not a licensed contractor” on all advertisements or else risk criminal charges. Becoming a licensed contractor can reduce the stress that comes with skirting the law, and give you the tools you need to succeed as a contractor. For instance, one aspect of the contractor licensing exam involves business management, which will come in handy as your contracting business grows.
