Home improvement contractors are licensed and renewed through this office. The arbitration program resolves disputes between homeowners and registered home improvement contractors. It also administers the Guaranty Fund, a fund of last resort for homeowners with an unpaid arbitration award or court judgment. Homeowners can apply to receive up to $10,000 from this fund, and in some cases, double damages. Contractors must register with the Home Improvement Registration Program, which is overseen by the Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation.
