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.
All contractors listed on permit applications must provide their PA registration number at the time of application.
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.
Contractors with questions about the law can call, 717-772-2425
