The California Contractors State License Board (CSLB) recently issued a news release regarding their recent sting operation, which caught several unlicensed contractors attempting to perform work for more than $500. Unlicensed contractors tend to prey on senior communities such as the Sun City retirement community, which assisted with the sting operation. Boards of directors and managers of senior communities should be especially vigilant and ensure due diligence is performed when hiring contractors. See the news release for a list of important tips and red flags when hiring contractors.
