A Henderson homeowner recently hired some professionals to make repairs to her pool. But, she was not happy with the work.

The two companies -- Blue Brothers and K&L -- were hired to change her filters and paint her pool.

After the work was completed, she learned the companies were not licensed by the Nevada Contractors Board.

13 Action News reached out to the companies. They say they never claimed to be licensed contractors and were simply working as handymen.

Under Nevada law, a handyman is not required to have a license. However, they can only perform jobs costing less than $1,000.

If you need professional help with a major repair or upgrade, contact the Nevada Contractors Board. They can tell you if the job requires a licensed contractor and verify is a company is properly licensed.
