Las Vegas Handymen
Originally published March 2017
Contractors. Vendors. Handymen. Same guys.
To protect ourselves for liability and assorted related nightmare’s I hire only licensed, bonded and insured vendors. As one judge most recently said, “no license, no justice.” I firmly believe that the benefits outweigh cost cutting alternatives.
The NV State Contractors Board (http://www.nvcontractorsboard.com/) has broken down each trade and requirements for licensing. For example a Handyman can perform repair work if the value is less than $1000, including labor and materials. The classifications go on. Contracting is a highly regulated field.
I mention this because the economy in LV has improved, and when construction jobs are everywhere – housing developments, road improvements, and expanding commercial facilities – skilled tradesmen are no longer taking small jobs to make ends meet. They are heading off to the big money.
Be careful if you hire a handyman on your own. Ask for proof of license and maybe a referral or two. Protect yourself.
If you use my vendors you can be certain that I am maintaining a professional symbiotic relationship, and most importantly they are qualified and experienced to handle the work they are hired to perform.
Happy Spring! d
