A fireplace installation is a big job that is more intricate than most people realize. Needless to say, it can be both a safety hazard and a headache if it’s not done correctly! Here are 3 questions to ask your contractor before starting the project:
1. Are you licensed with the city and insured?
Licensing indicates a company possesses the required knowledge and experience to perform the job efficiently and to city code. The insurance covers any potential accidents. While you might expect these to be requirements of all professional companies, not everyone plays by the rules, so be sure to double check before you hire!
