FAQ

Q: How do I choose a reputable Contractor?
A: Contractors are required to be licensed in the State they are conducting work

Q. How do I know if the contractor is licensed?
A. Ask to see a contractor’s license number before doing any work or signing any contracts. Check with the Nevada State Contractors Board to verify & search by name or the license: www.nscb.state.nv.us or call (702) 486-1100.
Accept no verbal agreements. Make sure to put your scope of work and agreed payment with the contractor in writing.

Q. What if I find something wrong after the work is completed?
A. Warranties are normally for 1 year on the workmanship. Call the contractor up & they will have their Customer Service come out to take a look.
All workers & supervisors are required to have OSHA certification

Q. What is a Pre-Lien or Right to Lien notice?
A. For the contractor to preserve their right to file a claim or a mechanics’ lien against a property in the case that they are not paid for completed work that was agreed upon, a “preliminary right to lien, or pre-lien notice” must be provided to you. In many cases this is a notice that is mailed to you once a contract is signed. Its purpose is not to scare you, but to notify you regarding persons or entities that may have the right to file a lien or claim against your property.
Waivers & Releases: Upon receiving an invoice for a payment on any phase of your project, you should receive a conditional waiver and release. The waiver should state that the contractor upon receiving payment for stated dollar amount waives the notice of lien or any claim against that dollar amount. This protects you from liability to them for work for which they have already been paid.
