Home Improvement Contractor Registration
PLEASE NOTE: If you register online, you will receive your registration number and printable temporary registration certificate instantaneously. If submitting a hard copy application, please allow approximately 4 weeks processing time.
In 2008, the Pennsylvania Legislature passed the Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act. The law requires that all contractors who perform at least $5,000 worth of home improvements per year register with the Attorney General’s Office.
We have worked to ensure that the registration process is as quick and easy as possible. Registration may be completed online or by mailing an application to our office. We encourage you to complete your registration online, as you will receive your registration number and a printable temporary registration certificate instantaneously.
As of July 1, 2009, consumers in Pennsylvania are able to verify registration with the Attorney General’s office by visiting the Registered Contractors page or by calling our toll-free hotline, 1-888-520-6680. Our office encourages consumers to use registered contractors when deciding to invest in home improvements.
