A Legacy Begins
Looking back and remembering my father, I recall the many hours and hard work he put in as a contractor in order to put food on our table and a roof over our heads. He took great pride in his workmanship, and passed on his values and skills to me. He taught me to drive a nail, build a deck and wire an outlet. He also taught me to do every job with integrity, and to have a sense of pride and accomplishment in all that I do — something I strive for every day to continue his legacy.
Licensed and Bonded – The Foundation
For centuries a man did his work with pride and integrity. Through the years, changes occurred in society that required laws to protect not only the contractor, but also the consumer, the state and others that play a role in the contractor industry. Many states adopted standardized written tests and developed a process for obtaining a contractor’s license. Surety bonds became a requirement as part of that licensing process.
Surety bonds insure that a contractor fulfills his obligations. These obligations could include compliance with the laws of a state or municipality, or, in some states, the protection of a third party (such as a homeowner), or for the timely and proper payment of labor and materials. These laws changed what used to be unregulated industry into a regulated industry.
Thank Those That Taught You
Being a contractor is a demanding, competitive job. It requires hard work, dedication to quality workmanship, and commitment to providing the best service possible. A strong work ethic and complying with state and city laws (that ensure you perform the job that you were hired to do), are also necessary to assure clients of your trustworthiness.
As Father’s Day approaches (June 21st), remember through the hustle and bustle of work, family, and day-to-day life, to thank someone special who taught you the skills to be the man or woman you are today. Take pride in passing on to others their legacy that was passed on to you.
