Q:

What should you look for in documentation of proof of insurance? Will they have a card which states they have liability and workmans comp? I assume the license would be obvious with the states info and all on it, but the insurance aspect makes me wonder. Thanks.

Great question.  We cover this and other details for hiring a contractor in our article on checking contractor's insurace.  The short answer is, to be really certain the contractor has insurace and that it's up to date, you should confirm with the contractor's insurance company.  Due diligence always pays off!  Good luck and thanks for your question.
