You should always hire someone that you are comfortable with. By all means, ask for, and check references.

For additional peace of mind, you should also ask for proof that the contractor you are hiring carries liability insurance- ask to see an insurance certificate.

If you want to check whether I or one of my competitors is licensed, you can go to the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection web site:

1. In the center of the page click on “Verify a License”
2. On the next screen, type in "Francis Paquet" (or another contractor's name) in the top search box
3. License and status should come. Click on "details" for more information.

My license number is HIC (for home improvment contractor) 611818.

The advantage of hiring a licensed contractor are as follows:

• You can verify their license and whether there are any complaints against it
• Should there be a significant problem with the work performed, you can file a complaint against the contractor and possibly recover some of your money through the Home Improvement Guaranty Fund.
