While the law requires contractors to register with the Attorney General’s office, this registration is not an endorsement of their honesty or quality of work. For this reason, in addition to seeing whether a contractor is registered with the Attorney General’s office, you should also:
- Thoroughly check your contractor’s references.
- Obtain more than one bid for the job.
- Check for complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau.
To verify the registration of a home improvement contractor, go to the Registered Contractors section of our website. Please note: Registration under HICPA is not an endorsement, recommendation or approval by the Office of Attorney General of the contractor’s competency or skill.
Consumers or businesses can call our Home Improvement Registration Hotline, at 1-888-520-6680, to report unregistered contractors operating in their communities. Complaints about unregistered contractors can also be emailed to our office at: HIC@attorneygeneral.gov
