Official: Beware of unlicensed contractors

Tough economic times are the domain of shysters and Wimpy Vaughn of the county planning and zoning office says that is especially true in the home remodeling field. ’We have had a number of instances lately where local people have been scammed by unlicensed home remodeling contractors. One case involved a contract in excess of $18,000. We caught that one in time. Others have not been so lucky,’ Vaughn said. Any home project which costs more than $2500 or involves structural changes requires a licensed contractor. Those thinking of hiring a contractor can check for licenses online at www.sos.ga.gov/plb/contractors. Those unsure about a prospective contractor can also contact Vaughn for guidance at 770-358-5437.
