Unlicensed Contractors hurt the pool & spa industry because they

  • They lack accountability. 
  • They have a high rate of involvement in construction scams.  
  • They are unfair competition offering artificially, low rates. 
  • They are unlikely to pull necessary permits.
  • They are likely to work outside the code of standards.
  • They undermine and damage the reputation of Licensed Contractors.
