All residential construction in Nebraska must be performed by a registered contractor under the Nebraska Contractor Registration Act, which requires contractors and subcontractors doing business in Nebraska to register with the Nebraska Department of Labor.
Registered contractors in Nebraska must carry an active workers' compensation policy, but are not required to have general liability insurance. It is always a good idea to hire contractors who have general liability insurance, request a copy of each insurance certificate before any work begins.
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.
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.
Before hiring a contractor in Nebraska, 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.
