The state of Texas does not require residential contractors to be licensed. This means that you, as a homeowner, need to make certain that you hire a professional and not a part-timer. A professional will have a history that includes completed projects and testimonials from customers. A professional will be able to show evidence of General Liability Insurance. A professional will provide a detailed estimate for the work to be done. If you are building a new home, a professional will provide a homeowner's warranty. Few life decisions have the impact of purchasing or building a new home. Take the time to get a "Professional". Choose a member of the HBA of Texarkana!
