Vetted Contractor Network was developed after years of acting as a contractor referral service to many of my own clients for their projects.
For almost 2 decades, I witnessed many challenges most small to midsized contractors face when it comes to finding the right contractors to work with.
Sure, choosing a subcontractor may sound like an easy task; but for those lacking a proper vetting system, hiring the wrong subcontractor can turn out to be a costly mistake resulting in insurance claims, audit premiums, and legal issues for the hiring contractor.
Throughout my years as a commercial insurance agent I’ve seen General Contractors get stuck with claims for construction damage or injured workers due to uninsured, underinsured or even expired General Liability or Workers Comp policies, resulting in thousands of dollars in claims, increased insurance premiums, and unexpected additional premium due to an audit.
All of this, even though the Subcontractor provided a valid Certificate of Insurance; only to find out later that the policy expired after they were hired, or was cancelled, or maybe even forged. All of these situations could have been easily avoided if the General Contractor had a due diligence system in place to properly verify their subcontractors.
With the help of our talented and experienced team we’ve been able to create a user-friendly platform that provides the transparency and support needed in the contractor community, and as a result is designed to help companies minimize risk when hiring contractors.
