10 Tips on Hiring a Contractor
- Only hire a licensed contractor: Interview and hire only State licensed contractors. Check a contractor’s license number online at www.azroc.gov or by calling 602-542-1525. Remember to check the license status again on the day you are scheduled to sign the contract even if you did so earlier. License status can change over night.
- Get Bids: Get at least three bids from licensed contractors. These contractors should be licensed to perform the specific trades related to your project.
- Licensed Subcontractors: Obtain a list of all sub-contractors that will be used on your project. Make sure these contractors are properly licensed.
- Everything in Writing: Make sure all agreements are in writing including changes made to the original agreement.
- Get & Verify References: Obtain three references of recent jobs from each bidder. Review their past work in person.
- Detailed Records: Keep a file of all papers relating to the project including a payment receipt file.
- Workers’ Compensation: Confirm that all contractors used on your project has workers’ compensation insurance for employees.
- Payments Schedule: Add a payment schedule based on work completed to your agreement. Don’t make payments ahead of schedule or before work is completed according to your agreement.
- Never Pay in Cash: Be cautious if asked to make a large down payment or to pay in full prior to the commencement of the project. Do not pay the contractor in cash.
- Final Inspection: Don’t make the final payment (exception – pool contracts) until you’re satisfied with the work performed.

Not Getting a Good Night’s Sleep?Human beings spend on average one third of our lives asleep, and still, insufficient sleep is a public health epidemic. Sleep is increasingly recognized as important to public health, with sleep insufficiency linked to motor vehicle crashes, industrial disasters, and medical and other occupational errors. Unintentionally falling asleep, nodding off while driving, and having difficulty performing daily tasks because of sleepiness all may contribute to these hazardous outcomes. Persons experiencing sleep insufficiency are also more likely to suffer from chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, depression, and obesity, as well as from cancer, increased mortality, and reduced quality of life and productivity. Sleep insufficiency may be caused by broad scale societal factors such as round-the-clock access to technology and work schedules, but sleep disorders such as insomnia or obstructive sleep apnea also play an important role. An estimated 50-70 million US adults have sleep or wakefulness disorder.*
