Arctic Metalworks the California Wine Cellar Refrigeration Systems Specialists are fully licensed California State Contractors.
Why is this important? The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) works hard to safeguard all types of consumers whether they are business entities or individuals. The regulation and licensing of California’s construction industry is a critical part of the process of protecting people from poor or fraudulent work.
This can be simply by making sure that contractors are educated regarding building codes and liable should they perform work knowingly not up to these codes. Installing and maintaining wine cellar refrigeration systems require an intimate knowledge of core building processes as well as electrical and plumbing systems.
What you may not know or fully appreciate is that if you hire an unlicensed contractor and their work turns out to be outside of code or cause damage or harm you can be held liable for damages.
There are over 40 classifications of licenses and more than 300,000 contractors holding licenses of various types. Watch this short video to gain an insight into why it is so important to check that your contractor is properly licensed.
In the fiscal year 2011-12 the CSLB helped recover nearly $36 million in ordered restitution to all types of consumers.
Whether it be for the building of a climate controlled custom wine cellar, maintenance of a wine cellar cooling unit or something more extensive in your home, office or commercial establishment protect yourself by only engaging with licensed California contractors.
