IMPORTANT FOR REPAIRS
Be sure to use ONLY contractors licensed by our local Contractors Licensing Board. Licensed contractors are required to be insured and the Contractors Licensing Board can help mitigate any issues that you may have with quality, standards, etc.
Following a disaster, unscrupulous or fraudulent people will seek to take advantage of the situation. All licensed contractors receive an official certificate on yellow paper with unique license and contractor numbers. To verify their information, search their database at bgky.org/contractorslicensing or call 270-781-3135. If a number can’t be verified, it could be invalid.
