Anytime you hire someone to make improvements to your home or office it is imperative that you use a licensed contractor.
A licensed contractor can not obtain a license without possessing a minimum amount of experience, and licensed contractors must pass a business management test to ensure they have the knowledge necessary to operate a business. Licensed contractors are subjected to a criminal history background check, and must not have any unresolved contracting complaints outstanding.
Licensed contractors will make sure your shutter installation meets all applicable codes, including all wind resistance guidelines. This is imperative for your shutters to provide maximum security and protection. It may also be necessary for a licensed contractor to install your shutters in the event you seek a discounts on your homeowners insurance.
If you don't use a licensed professional you may be violating local laws and regulations, but more importantly you won't be sure that your shutters will provide you with the full protection they are designed for.
