Richard prides himself on the professional qualifications and skills he has acquired that get used in his business everyday. Richard is a licenced carpenter with apprentice carpenters (not general labourers) working under him. He is also a member of the Home Builders Association - Peterborough. There are no other crews you'll be working with when you hire his services - you'll get Richard at your worksite, everyday. Guaranteed.
Workers’ Compensation Coverage
All Richard's employees have Workers' Compensation coverage - in fact, most contractors are required by law to have it. If you hire a contractor who does not have this coverage, you face an increased risk of claims or financial loss if a worker is injured on your project.
Business Liability Insurance
Richard Northey Custom Carpentry also carries Business Liability Insurance. This insurance will protect you if your home is damaged through the fault of the contractor, or if the contractor causes damage or injury to third parties, like your neighbours.
Do you need a building permit?
It's important that your project complies with local building codes. Work stoppages, fines, or both can result if you do not. Most changes to the structure of your home, even the very minor, may require a building permit. Richard will tell you if one is required, and will acquire it on your behalf before the project begins.
