Most everyone knows that if they are having construction done that they should hire a licensed contractor.  To become a licensed contractor a state usually imposes specific requirements such as minimum education or work experience. The state may also require that the contractor prove knowledge through examinations.  A business license however is different from a contractors license.  A business license can be obtained with a couple hundred dollars and a visit to local clerk of court. Finding a licensed contractor isn’t difficult, all licensed contractor advertisements—whether it be an ad in the phone book or newspaper, a flyer that shows up at your front door, or the company’s name on the side of a truck— have the contractor’s state license number. You can check the license status online or call  850.487.1395.

Finding a PROFESSIONAL Licensed Contractor is the challenging part.  For most homeowners, the hardest part of any home renovation project isn’t the work itself, it’s finding a reliable contractor to do the job. Installing kitchen cabinets, knocking down a wall or retiling the bathroom is simple compared with the struggle of hiring a professional contractor who will perform at a high level from start to finish, or even just to show up in a timely manner.  There are so many stories about contractors starting a job and just never returning!

Here are some tips for finding a reliable, professional licensed contractor:

  • Ask your insurance agent- if work to be done is a result of a disaster (man made or natural) and will be claimed through insurance, contact your agent for licensed contractors.
  • Ask friends, relatives and co-workers for references. People you know who have done similar projects are your reliable sources.
  • Read online reviewsGoogle, Angie’s List, and the Better Business Bureau are reliable sources.  Click here for Complete DKI’s Google reviews
  • Check their License!- ask to see his/her pocket license, along with a picture I.D. Make sure the person you’re dealing with is the same person on the license.
  • Verify the contractor’s business location and telephone number-A contractor who operates a business from the back of a pickup truck with a cellphone may be difficult to find if a job needs to be fixed after final payment is made.

Turning on the TV in the morning to our local news channel and hearing that bad weather is on it’s way is the absolute last thing we want to hear to start our day. Of course when we get word that a bad storm is brewing and our home is in danger, it is human nature to become a little nervous. Now sometimes we can hear this news and think that the meteorologist that is making the prediction is wrong and that the storm will pass; that could be likely BUT it is also very likely that they are in fact correct and we need to prepare ourselves and our family for the worst. So where do we start? Complete DKI is here to help with some tips on what to do, what to pack and how to prepare your safe room BEFORE we get the news of a storm coming our way!

  • Make  a family emergency plan. Make sure you discuss with all of your family members what to do in case you have to get out of your house immediately or if you get split up during the process. Have a meeting spot near your house that is in a safe place.
  • Prepare a home emergency kit. Some key items for this kit would include- Batteries (stored safely), medication, portable radio, back up phone battery/charger, water/snacks, first aid kit, sturdy gloves, torch (battery operated), toiletries, pet food (if applicable), baby food/diapers (if applicable), any valuables, water proof bags, etc. 
  • Keep your home emergency kit in a safe and dry place. Make sure that all of the items are not expired and are able to use.
  • Secure any items around your property that could fly away in high winds and could be a hazard to you or your home.
  • Make sure your home and car insurance is up to date
  • Clear any loose branches around your home that could be a hazard during high winds
  • Make sure you know how to correctly and safely turn off your power and gas in case of an emergency
  • Identify your safe room and make sure your family knows the quickest and most efficient way to get themselves and any pets into the room
  • Get shutters or metal screens fitted to your windows for extra protection
  • After a storm warning, act quickly and listen to the advice officials have given you. Make sure your other family members are aware and ready to move in t If you experience damage in your home, call Complete DKI 24/7.

  • Make sure your pets are safely inside 
  • Grab your emergency kit and activate your family emergency plan

Sometimes we don’t get a lot of warning before a storm. You could have heard a day ago that there will be a bad storm passing and there will be tornado warnings, but you think nothing of it. The next thing your know, the electricity cuts out and you hear faint sirens notifying you that a tornado is near. Times like those make us thankful that we have family emergency plans and we know what to do in these types of situations. If you don’t already have a plan, we encourage you to take these tips and put one together for you and your family. Never take a storm warning lightly; always prepare for the worst.
