Minimum Installer Credentials
The State of California requires that ALL contractors (operators) charging in excess of $500 per job (labor and materials included) be licensed by the Contractors State License Board, also known as the CSLB.
No one can borrow or lend a license – it is issued to either a person, a company or a corporation. Who you contract with should be the named licensed contractor or you may not have a bondable contract in the eyes of the CSLB. You can validate a license, bonds and insurance of a contractor at http://www.cslb.ca.gov or call 1-800-321-CSLB (2752)
To contract for the sale and installation of artificial grass materials, operators should have 4 (four) years of experience and must hold a valid, active C27 and/or a C61/D12 license in California. Always ask for references, referrals and check them to verify experience.
Your contractor should be able to provide proof of required bonds, workman comp & general liability insurance. If your contractor (or a sub-contractor) does not carry a valid workman’s comp insurance policy – you may be liable for injuries that occur to laborers on your property during the construction of your project.
