  Lastly, when some one comes out for your closing repairs make sure that contractor has the proper licensing for the job they are doing. For work on a foundation or structure your contractor will need to have a residential home builders license.

Licensing 

   You can search the license number your contractor should provide to you at www.llc.sc.gov.  This is to make sure that it is current and there is a bond on file. Its also a good idea to make sure they are insured (with the right insurance to cover their scope of work).  Major issues can happen while working on your house. The homeowner should not get stuck with the bill.
