Handyman vs Contractor
Since there are so many options for Seattle handyman services you have to hire right. Hence, doing your homework is a must. Many homeowners have yet to hear the news. Its noteworthy to mention we have taken a recent poll. The end results: many consumers are not aware that not holding the proper licensing through the state of Washington will place a great deal of liability on a homeowner.
Furthermore, consumers are not aware of a pertinent fact. Unless a handyman service company is only being hired to trim your lawn, clean your gutters, or change a light bulb, they are required by law and Labor and Industries to be fully licensed.
Why does a handyman need to by licensed?
First of all, under the Washington’s Contractor Registration Act a handyman must be fully licensed, insured, and bonded. Consequently if they are not registered they are simply breaking the law. In this industry this is a common way for a ”handyman” to avoid paying, sale tax, B&O tax, workers compensation, etc. and it will place the consumer at risk. Workers compensation is required to ensure that you will not be liable for any injuries that take place on your home, so the risk is real.
By law, registration is required by anyone:
- Offering advice
- Providing direction
- Presenting proposals and estimates, or
- Performing any type of improvement work.
For the protection of the consumer, this includes minor home repairs (RCW 18.27).
Moreover, homeowners have to use caution because there are many Handy Seattleites out there working in the neighborhood who operate as unlicensed ‘’contractors.” They are in fact misclassifying and seriously misrepresenting themselves they place the buyer at risk. This is fraud and it should be reported.
Since working with an unlicensed handyman can lead to major issues it is best to hire a reputable firm in the area.
