Home Improvement Contractor Information
Contact Lt. Richard J. Santangelo
(Belmont) In the past few years, we have seen a dramatic increase in Complaints against Home Improvement Contractors. While most contractors are honest and reputable, there are some who are not and still others who take on a project that they are not capable of completing.
This presentation by the Belmont police will assist homeowners in what to look for as well as what to look out for when selecting a home improvement contractor.
We will discuss what exactly a Home Improvement Contractor is, what projects require a registration or license, who can recover under the statute, recommendations for the homeowner when selecting a contractor, what to look for once you have selected a contractor but before you sign the contract, the terms required in a contract and what your recourses are if something goes wrong.
