BEWARE: Unlicensed Craigslist Contractors!

Date: February 4, 2013

Is your contractor licensed?  Copp Roofing & Construction, Inc. is a licensed contractor and each member of its sales team has a Home Improvement Salesperson license.  That means that they have been fingerprinted, background checked and licensed by the California State License Board to enter your home and conduct business regarding your next home improvement project.

State law requires that the work on all home improvement projects valued at $500 or more (combined labor and material costs) must be performed by a licensed contractor. 

The Contractors State License Board is cracking down on unlicensed contractors and illegal advertising of contracting services.  CSLB investigators posed as homeowners seeking bids for home improvement projects including: roofing, landscaping, painting and fencing.  Thirty-six people were arrested and now face misdemeanor charges for contracting without a license.  Thirty of them were charged with illegal advertising on the popular Internet bulletin board, Craigslist.

State law requires that the work on all home improvement projects valued at $500 or more (combined labor and material costs) must be performed by a licensed contractor.  Laws also require contractors who are licensed to include their state contractor license in all print, media and Internet ads and for un-licensed contractor to state that they do not have a license.

Avoid legal and liability issues by hiring a licensed contractor who is fully insured and carries Workers Compensation.
