July 1, 2009 The Pennsylvania Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act Becomes Law - Brookhaven, PA

Pennsylvania Law Makers voted in October 2008 to put this Legislation in place to help protect consumers when dealing with contractors in 2 ways:  #1 by offering consumers the knowledge up front that a contractor is registered with the state and #2 by offering consumers legal recourse if a fraudulent situation occurs while under contract with a home improvement contractor.

Durren Construction ServicesDoug and I became aware of this legislation since Doug is still a practicing contractor in addition to being a Realtor®.  He registered on line and obtained his HIC # and now all of his printed material must show this number. 

Before hiring a contractor look for their HIC #.  If you are not sure if a particular home improvement contractor is registered with the State, call the Bureau of Consumer Protection at 1-888-520-6680. 

To find out more about this law and who is required by law to be registered

May all of your home improvement experiences be good!
