Guidelines about Contractor

This is another issue to which only a confident “Yes” is appropriate. If a contractor intends to avoid his obligations in this field, your insurance policy will be jeopardised. They could also be avoiding obtaining the necessary permits because they are doing work that is not covered by their licence. If the contractor asks you to obtain the permits yourself, this is a huge red flag that they may not be properly approved or registered to work on your project. Do you want to learn more?

If you’re renovating a home constructed before 1978, there’s a chance you’ll disturb lead-based paint. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) have stringent lead regulations, with serious penalties for non-compliance. Even if a contractor is well-intentioned, a contractor who is unfamiliar with lead paint renovations will easily forget the procedures needed to remain compliant. As a property manager, this could jeopardise your membership in the MDE’s restricted tort liability insurance programme, leaving you open to future litigation. The EPA has levied fines of up to $37,500 for violations of the Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Law.
The cost of a contractor’s offer would increase if they meet EPA and MDE guidelines. If another contractor wants to persuade you that he can save money by skimping on lead-safety precautions, be aware that this could end up costing you a lot of money in the long run. More specifically, lead exposure can have serious repercussions for your family’s, coworkers’, and tenants’ wellbeing. Is it possible for me to see any of your projects? What are the different types of projects you work on? Have you recently completed any projects that are close to mine?
You want to hire a contractor who is proud of their work, and these contractors will be eager to show you examples of their previous work. Many contractors will be able to refer you to a website that contains galleries of their most recent designs.
