Use caution when hiring contractor

The Nevada State Contractors Board urges consumers to follow these simple tips when dealing with a contractor:

* Hire only licensed contractors. Ask to see the license.

* Don’t rush into decisions or hire without checking out potential contractors.

* Be especially wary when approached by someone offering home improvements door-to-door.

* Verify the contractor’s license by checking online at or via automated phone service at 486-1100.

* Ensure the contractor is properly licensed for the work you want done on your home.

* Limit the amount of your down payment or deposit to 10 percent of the total contract.

* Don’t pay cash without obtaining signed receipts, and don’t let the payments get ahead of the work.
