Nearly 20 percent of contractors working in three New Jersey counties on repairs to damage caused by superstorm Sandy are not registered with the state, according to inspectors from the state’s Division of Consumer Affairs. The state requires registration of all home-improvement contractors. Unregistered contractors will first get a warning, but subsequent violations will result in fines. The registration requirements apply to all home improvement contractors including roofers, masons, and window installers. Homeowners are being warned to make sure companies are registered before hiring them to do any work.
