Tips For Protecting Yourself When Hiring a Contractor

Always Hire a Contractor That Is Registered

In the state of New Jersey, all home improvement businesses must be registered with the Division of Consumer Affairs. To register, a business must meet requirements such as having a legitimate street address and at least $500,000 in liability insurance. When you are interested in hiring a contractor, the first step is to contact the Division of Consumer Affairs and see if the contractor is in fact a legitimate business.

Get a Written Contract

For all projects estimated at over $500, the Division of Consumer Affairs requires that a written contract be present. Even if a project falls under the $500 threshold, it is suggested that customers still establish a paper contract. All contracts must contain the following information:

  • Contractor’s legal name and business address
  • Contractor’s registration number
  • Project start and completion dates
  • Details of the work to be performed
  • Total project price
