This ad I found on Craigslist is for all you damn stupid fools who want to save a few bucks on your deck waterproofing and fixing leaks…
The clown contractor here is unlicensed and probably uninsured. Liability insurance is not essential when your a hack contractor. Oh and btw, bet they don’t have workers comp insurance either. CSLB is going to be running stings looking for cheats on workers comp…
So yes, the clown contractor on craigslist will save you some money up front…just hope no one gets hurt on your property, they usually find that the property owner just became the “de-facto” employer and will order a judgment up against you to pay for the hurt workers medical care, living expenses, taking care of his/her family…that kind of thing, maybe for the rest of their lives.
What else is at risk…oh, no factory support from Dex-O-Tex, they don’t have unlicensed contractors authorized to put their prouct down…neither does any other company. Bet this clown goes to Jet Coatings for his materials…they sell to anybody.
What else…Oh, he’s using a cell number…yeah you’ll be able to find him later on after he cancels that number and moves to another…just send a letter to the address he gave ya!
So, yes, go ahead and call the clown contractor, but no one wants to hear yer crying later on!
