Good Tips

Workers Safety and Insurance Board Registration

The contractor that you hire should be registered and in good standing with the WSIB, otherwise this makes you responsible for any injuries that may be associated with your project.

Liability Insurance

Liability Insurance protects the contractor as well as the project owner - you - from any unexpected incidents that may involve damage to your property or any neighbouring properties.


A contract is important to protect both the project owner - you - and the contractor.

Supplier References

It is important to verify that your contractor pays his/her suppliers regularly and on time to prevent you from becoming liable for any debts with their creditors.

Client References

Client references are the most common and effective way to determine your contractor's credibility as well as their quality of work. Do not hesitate to ask for references and to actually see projects that your contractor has completed in your area.
