Contracting & Bids

Hiring a Contractor

Below are some helpful hints for hiring a contractor. Please note that contractors are licensed by the State of Idaho.

  • The State of Idaho requires that any individual or company performing electrical, HVAC, or plumbing work obtain the required licenses.
  • If you, as the owner, choose to hire a contractor, you must verify that the contractor is properly licensed with the
          State of Idaho Division of Building Safety.
  • Contractors must get the appropriate permits for the work they perform. Contractors may not legally perform work under a property owner          (homeowner's) permit.

Helpful Hints About Contracting

  • Get three bids from separate contractors.
  • Get referrals; check sites like the Better Business Bureau website for reviews.
