PLANNING A HOME IMPROVEMENT? You may want to check to see be sure your contractor has registered with the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office, as most contractors are required to do so by Pennsylvania’s Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act. Contractors are required to maintain minimum insurance coverage and comply with a number of consumer protection requirements specified in this law. The Attorney General’s Bureau of Consumer Protection is responsible for enforcement of these requirements. The fact that a contractor is registered does not serve as any sort of endorsement; however, each registered contractor registered has a number that may be useful if you should need to lodge a complaint. If you would like to make a complaint about a contractor, call the Pittsburgh regional office at 412-565-5135.
