About BuildZoom

BuildZoom has one simple purpose: To help you find the perfect contractor.

How we do this is more complicated. BuildZoom is a database of every licensed contractor in the United States. We work hard to figure out who the great contractors are, and who the bad contractors are.

BuildZoom combines license information on 3.5 million contractors with 75 million building permits, and over 80,000 reviews from homeowners and the Better Business Bureau.

If you are looking for a specific contractor and you can’t find them on BuildZoom, it’s likely that they do not have a license - please contact us and we’ll try to help!

Finding a Contractor through BuildZoom

The best way to use BuildZoom is to let us recommend contractors for your remodeling projects.

Homeowners who hire through BuildZoom's free bidding system report high rates of satisfaction, and homeowners who research contractors online are twice as likely to be happy at the end of their project.

If you hire a contractor through BuildZoom, that contractor is accountable to us. We can enforce standards of behavior, mediate disputes, and guarantee satisfaction.

Read more about why hiring through BuildZoom is so effective.

Why should I trust BuildZoom

We built this site to help people find great contractors, and to help people avoid bad contractors. We take this incredibly seriously, and we have a zero tolerance policy for contractors who don’t adhere to our standards.

1 million people use BuildZoom every month. Our business depends on their trust.

If a contractor does poor work, they will no longer receive leads from BuildZoom, and a negative review will be posted on their profile.

Here are some of the rules, regulations, and laws governing contractors in Idaho

Does Lafever Construction Inc carry a valid contracting license?

The state of Idaho does not license general contractors working on private sector residential or commercial projects, however many local jurisdictions require licensing. Homeowners should check references, and perform due diligence when hiring a contractor.

Lafever Construction Inc currently holds license IDRCE-8842 ((Framing Labor & Rough Carpentry)), which was Active when we last checked.

How important is contractor licensing in Idaho?

The goal of the Idaho Division of Building Safety is to protect the public health, safety and welfare through the registration and regulation of those who provide contracting services in Idaho. Plumbing and electrical contractors must pass a trade exam to become licensed in Idaho.

Your liability risk when hiring Lafever Construction Inc

General Contractors in Idaho are not required to carry general liability insurance. It is always a good practice to only hire contractors with active liability and workers' compensation insurance policies. Request a copy of each certificate for your records before the project starts.

Financial recourse when hiring Lafever Construction Inc

Homeowners can file complaints with the Idaho Attorney General's office of Consumer protection. To file a complaint about a plumbing, electrical, or HVAC contractor a homeowner can file complaints with the Idaho Division of Building Safety.

What else should I know before hiring Lafever Construction Inc

Idaho has minimal regulations on contractor licensing so it is the consumer's responsibility to perform their due diligence and ask for client referrals before hiring. The Idaho State Police Department also maintains a Website so Idaho citizens can run their own criminal background check if they are so inclined.

How is the BuildZoom score calculated?

The BuildZoom score is based on a number of factors including the contractor's license status, insurance status, verified work history, standing with local consumer interest groups, verified reviews from other BuildZoom users and self-reported feedback from the contractor.

Why you should hire through BuildZoom

When it comes to major construction work or even minor alterations to your home, hiring the wrong contractor could result in incomplete or defective work. You may even find yourself dealing with huge liability claims. BuildZoom does the homework for you and helps you hire the right contractor.

You should get several bids before hiring a contractor

Before hiring a contractor in Idaho, be sure to get at least 3 detailed bids. Quality contractors will take the time to explain their budget proposal, and help guide you through the estimate process. Be wary of an abnormally low bid, they are not worth the risk. These underpriced projects often do not end well for the homeowner, choose a contractor you trust and can clearly communicate with.
