The Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act

This law has been in effect since July 1, 2009. It requires all home improvement contractors that work in Pennsylvania to be registered with the state Attorney General's office. Consumers can check to see if a specific contractor is registered by visiting the Attorney General's Home Improvement Contractor website.
