Home Advisor is a free service for homeowners to use to get written estimates from fully licensed and insured contractors in their area. Home Advisor can provide licensed contractors for just about any type of home contracting service including tile and grout cleaning, sealing, regrouting, recaulking and restoration services.
The licensing standards for tile, grout and stone cleaning and restoration contractors vary from state to state. All states require that licensed contractors have the necessary insurance for their particular trade. Many states also require advanced testing and skills training courses to be a licensed contractor in their particular field. Home Advisor ensures that all contractors in their network are fully licensed and qualified to do work in their particular field for the state that they do work in.
Contractors in the Home Advisor network get reviewed on the quality of work they perform by their previous customers. Home Advisor will also attempt resolve any issues that might come up with a contractor hired through their network. It is important for Home Advisor contractors to do quality and professional work to keep their ratings up so that they can continue to receive job leads through the Home Advisor network. Home Advisor also allows you to read contractor reviews supplied by previous clients that hired contractors through their network.
You should only hire fully licensed, bonded and insured contractors. It is important to understand your liability as a homeowner. If an unlicensed contractor damages your home or anyone is injured while they are working on your home you could be held liable. It is the responsibility of the homeowner to ensure that contractors working on their home are fully licensed and insured. Also there is little recourse if an unlicensed contractor damages something in your home or steals any of your valuables. Fully licensed and insured contractors are also much more likely to do a satisfactory job than unlicensed contractors.
