Even though TrustedPros will be an easy and safe way to find a contractor, there are couple things you need to keep in mind before hiring someone:

  • Liability coverage is very important for you to make sure a contractor has before you hire that individual. Any accidents that happen to or on your property can easily be left up to you to fix and write a check for without this valuable coverage. Make sure you see a visible copy or confirm their liability coverage before hiring any contractor for any job.
  • Workers Safety Insurance Board (WSIB) coverage is a new mandatory insurance all contractors and their sub-contractors are required to have before beginning any job. This covers them should they be hurt on your property. If you hire someone directly taking additional steps to verify a contractor has valid and in force coverage can protect you from an inspection mandated work stoppage and fines.
