Finding a qualified contractor is the first step toward quality control of any construction project, including the purchase and installation of awnings. Your reward will be the timely and successful completion of your project with a contractor you know and trust. Start with these three simple questions you should ask before you hire an awning contractor:
All California building contractors must be able to provide proof of a Contractor's License, Performance Bond, Business and Vehicle Liability
Coverage, City Business License, Seller's Permit, Workers Compensation Coverage and OSHA Safety Program. Few property owners
are aware that they may suffer unrecoverable damage and loss or be held liable for losses suffered by others, including workers on
their property, when they hire an unlicensed, uninsured or underinsured contractor. Superior Awning maintains a full and current
portfolio of the required licenses, permits and insurance policies and will provide details upon request. Beware the contractor
who does not have every component of a complete license and insurance portfolio. Excuses such as "I am exempt from Workers Compensation
because I do not technically have employees" should be view skeptically. If uninsured workers are hurt on your property,
you are liable regardless of by whom they are technically employed. Check your contractor's record. Call or log on
to the California Contractors State License Board to verify license status and check for complaints and citations (our CSLB# is 589431.)
How to Choose an Awning Contractor
Superior Awning has been making fine custom outdoor shade products in Southern California for over thirty years. We have
extensive experience in all phases of awning construction including design, engineering, manufacturing and installation. Our
after-sale service is unparalleled in the industry and is just one more reason so many local, national and international corporations
choose us for their California projects. In fact, very few contractors are able to qualify to work with such organizations due
to license issues, inadequate insurance, poor safety records, etc. We are proud to have consistently won contracts in competitive
bidding contests with thousands of discriminating corporations and organizations. Please visit our High Profile Projects page
for a sample listing of corporate and government clients.
