We Pull All Our Building Permits
Not all the companies in the business pull the building permits. There are a few reasons for that. First, they might not have the proper licensing to do so. In the state of MA, in order for the contractor to pull a permit, they need to have Home Improvement License (HIC) and Construction Supervisor’s License (CSL). Some contractors do not obtain these two licenses, which is why they do not pull building permits. What this means is that the person that did the work is not liable for the work that was performed in front of the state of MA. Which means that the building official did not get the chance to inspect their work, which may have been performed at the lowest standards possible. Even worse, sometimes contractors make homeowners pull the building permits. It means that the homeowner takes the liability not only for the job but also for the well being of the contractor and his employees at the job site. If the contractor or his employees get hurt at the project where the homeowner has pulled the permit, they can sue the homeowner because by pulling the building permit homeowner took the whole responsibility for the job.
