Home Improvement Contractor Registration
What You Need To Know
When Ed Rendell was Governor of Pennsylvania he signed Senate Bill 100 creating a law that requires home improvement contractors to register with the State Attorney General's Office. This includes any contractors doing more than $5,000 in home improvement work annually. Those contractors receive a registration number that must be displayed and provided to potential customers.

REVISED CONSTRUCTION GUIDELINES
Pennsylvania's Department of Labor and Industry has revised and updated its guidance governing how to count workers on residential projects. As PBA has lobbied from the beginning and as was preiously represented by the administration, exterior workers will not count against the four-workers-per job site limit. The important revised answer is in response to the question "Do worker limits apply to work being done on the exterior of the property?"
We understand that four workers inside is still less than ideal for some projects; but the ability to work with crews both outside and inside a structure should allow members more flexibility in both scheduling and complying with safety guidelines.
