Pennsylvania contractors are required to renew their registration by July 1 with the state Attorney General.
Registration is required every two years under the Home Improvement Contractor Protection Act, which took effect four years ago. It applies to all contractors performing $5,000 or more in home improvements in a calendar year.
Additionally, there is a $50 fee required every two years, and contractors may continue using their existing registration number. New certificates will be mailed upon re-registration.
Re-registration can be done online. Paper registration forms can be mailed to: Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, Bureau of Consumer Protection, Attn: Home Improvement Contractor Registration, 15th Floor, Strawberry Square, Harrisburg 17120. Forms are available online or by calling 717-772-2425.
