The Vegas Painters Guarantee. License #53359
Protect your home and hire a licensed contractor.
There are two guarantees
Workmanship and Products (Materials used)
Workmanship is covered by Vegas Painters
Product is covered by the Paint Manufacturer.
What does our Workmanship Guarantee cover?
The Vegas Painters Workmanship Guarantee provides proper preparations to the substrate (surface to be painted) and proper finish application according to the paint manufacturers specifications. The paint manufacture in turns offers a limited guarantee on their paint products. If the paint fails due to workmanship the contractor is required to make corrections.
How long is our Guarantee good for?
State of Nevada Law requires a contractor to provide a 4-year guarantee. The customer has 4-years to make a complaint that will be acted upon by the contractor’s board. Vegas Painters provides a 5-year guarantee. We go above and beyond the required time.
*Our warranty takes effect upon full payment for contact in relationship to work performed. *
“When working with a contractor, insist on a written guarantee for no less than 4-years”.
Many licensed contractors will provide anywhere from 1 to 2-year guarantee. This is because they are unaware that the law requires 4-years.
What you should know about your Contractor
There are two distinctions you should know. There are licensed contractors and there are Non-licensed people who claim to be a contractor.
Licensed by the State of Nevada
The State of Nevada requires a paint contractor to hold a licensed authorized by the State.
In addition, the contractor is required to hold liability insurance to protect the homeowner in case the contractor damages your property.
The contractor is also required to provide workers compensation insurance to protect their employees in case of an accident.
Both insurances protect you from having to use your homeowners insurance in case of property damage or personal injury.
If your contractor is licensed and the contractor does not honor his work you have the right to make a formal complaint against the contractor for up to 4 years. The contractor’s board will investigate and if the contractor is found to have unacceptable workmanship the board will make the contractor fix it.
Look out For Non-Licensed people who say they are a contractor.
What are your remedies if you hire a non-licensed person and their work is unsatisfactory? First, you will not get any help from the State Contractor’s Board. You are on your own. What can you do?
Hire an attorney and sue, this of course cost money and takes time. Not worth the aggravation. In addition, if he did not follow the law, he most likely will not have insurance. If he causes damage or if he gets hurt on your property, your insurance will have to cover it all.
Residential Construction Recovery Fund.
This fund makes money available to you if you are damaged financially by a project performed on your residence pursuant to a contract and if the damage resulted from certain specified violations of Nevada law by a licensed contractor. This of course will take effect if the contractor fails to return to make repairs.
