Posted: 12/18/2014

The cheapest price may not be the best solution when it comes to repairing flood damage, removing a fallen tree, fixing a downed fence, or patching a leaky roof. Consumers can use CSLB’s online resources, available at www.cslb.ca.gov or CheckTheLicenseFirst.com, to review the license status of contractors they plan to hire and to get tips about the best approach for making home repairs.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) reminds California home owners to use only licensed contractors when it comes to storm damage repairs. The cheapest price may not be the best solution when it comes to repairing flood damage, removing a fallen tree, fixing a downed fence, or patching a leaky roof.

“Anyone who needs to make repairs from storm damage should be looking for a legitimate, qualified tradesperson, especially in an urgent situation,” said CSLB Registrar Steve Sands. “Licensed contractors are skilled in their specific trade, insured and bonded, and not likely to leave you in the lurch when it comes to properly completing the job at a fair price.”

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Steve Pasion and Jose Enriquez both had a common goal to one day start their own architecture firm; they had been practicing at other architecture firms since the mid-1990s. Pasion and Enriquez met as colleagues at a small firm in Sacramento in 1999 and developed a friendship. They began collaborating in joint venture projects in 2010 and shortly after opened their own architecture firm: Pasion & Enriquez Architecture. In 2013, they opened their Carmichael office located at 7411 Fair Oaks Boulevard, Suite A2.

When asked what drew each of them to architecture, Enriquez said, “In grade school, I didn’t know what an architect was. When I looked it up in the encyclopedia, it sounded so unique. The thought of making that idea a reality was really exciting.”
