There are many good Orange County Patio Cover contractors with high standards and good intentions, some of whom do a fine job, but too often others fall short, you've heard the stories. Part of the problem is a lack of understanding of the water proofing mechanisms of patio cover horizontal surfaces. We are not all the same.

The California Contractors State License Law requires contractors to display their license number prominently along with all advertising. A wise patio cover consumer should make note of the contractor's license number and check it with the Contractors State License Board, for the following: Date issued, Insurance, employees, Disciplinary actions, etc... A very important bit of data is how long they've in business under that particular license number. No excuses should be accepted like "we were in business under another number before". The current License number is the only one relevant to you.
