Our Story

In 18 years as a commercial insurance agent working with construction contractors, Cecilia DelaRosa has developed a unique understanding of the challenges and frustrations GC’s have when it comes to finding reliable vetted subs.

While working with agency clients Cecilia noticed that a very small number of GC’s had any sort of vetting method for their subcontractors while the majority had none. Most GC’s thought obtaining a Certificate of Insurance from their sub was good enough only to find out later that the policy had expired or was cancelled.

Cecilia has seen firsthand how 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.

With the rebounding construction market, it became clear that the construction environment was quickly changing and had different challenges. Making it more important than ever to know who you’re working with.

Cecilia DelaRosa invited Charlie Furst to begin the journey of creating a reliable, streamlined vetting process for contractors. Resulting in the creation of Vetted Contractor Network.

During the development of VCN it quickly became apparent that this was more than just a vetting service for contractors but rather a platform where contractors could easily connect, communicate and create strong working relationships amongst themselves.

With features such as bid invites, posting upcoming projects and implementing direct communication between members we have centralized and streamlined the vetting process making VCN the go-to platform to find vetted contractors.

With the help of our talented and experienced team we’ve been able to create a user-friendly platform that provides the transparency needed in the contractor community, and as a result is designed to help companies minimize risk.
