What to Expect When Hiring a Water Damage Repair Company
While there are no particular federal regulations to guide the water damage repair and restoration industry, the state of Arizona, for instance, requires anyone performing any reconstruction, repair or remodeling work totaling $1, 000 and above (in labor and materials) to have an ROC license. And contracting without a valid license or the right insurance can result in dire consequences.
What to Expect:
Licensed: The company you are contracting must have a valid ROC license or relevant reconstruction/repair/remodeling license, depending on your state
Insured: The company should also have the required insurance (Contractor’s Pollution Liability, Worker’s Compensation, and General Liability). Additionally, the company should also be bonded
Professional Certification: They should also be holders of certification from an industry leader like IICRC to show they have received the right training and are qualified
Services: They should offer a full range of services required to repair water damage and restore your home (from extraction or water removal to drying and reconstruction).
Staff: The personnel should possess full training in areas of the services offered.
