Well, perhaps the latter, if salons don’t start opening back up soon! The point is, that it is important to make sure that you have hired the right person for the particular service that you need. In order to ensure that the job is done appropriately and within the agreed upon industry standards you should always do your research before hiring a contractor. Below are some guidelines to help you navigate through some of the fine print that can come along with hiring contractors in Winston Salem specifically within the restoration industry.


This speaks to the legitimacy of the business that you are working with. Licensure means that someone at the company has taken the time to study and pass the state exam, complies with continuing education requirements and in general is less likely to be a fly by night company.

All technicians at STOP Restoration are certified within their first year and annually gain additional training and industry certifications.


Coverage for themselves and their employees when working at your property. This is necessary to protect you against any damages or accidents that could potentially occur during the process of the job. If a contractor is not insured and gets injured while working on your property, you could be held liable for medical expenses.
