Check on a Contractor's License
Why check a contractor’s license? The Construction Contractors Board (CCB) believes the best way to a successful home improvement, repair or new home project is to know your contractor. Checking a contractor’s license can tell you:
The contractor is actively licensed and has a surety bond;
The contractor submitted proof of liability insurance at the time of application and insurance renewal*;
The contractor submitted information that they carry Workers' Comp Insurance to protect its workers on the project;
Breach of contract complaints filed with the CCB in the past seven years.
CCB disciplinary actions against business in the pasts seven years.

IMPORTANT: Homeowners lose the ability to recover damages through the bond as well as the CCB Dispute Resolution Service (DRS) if they use an unlicensed contractor.

What kind of complaints will I see?
The CCB Dispute Resolution Services (DRS) helps consumers resolve disputes that arise from a construction project. The CCB tracks and makes information available on the following types of disputes and CCB disciplinary actions covering a seven year period:
Disputes Not Yet Investigated. "Disputes Not Yet Investigated" are complaints filed with the CCB DRS against a contractor but not yet investigated, either by meeting with the parties at the jobsite or by requesting a response from the contractor.
Disputes Pending. A "Pending Dispute" is an open dispute that is under investigation but not yet resolved. It is subject to further processing by the CCB before issuing a final order to either dismiss the dispute or award damages.
Pending Proposed Dismissal. A "Pending Proposed Dismissal" is an open dispute that the CCB proposes to dismiss and a party has contested the CCB's decision by requesting a hearing or taking the matter to court. 
Disputes Voluntarily Settled. "Disputes Voluntarily Settled" are disputes that have been settled or resolved by the parties involved in the dispute.
Disputes Dismissed by Agency. These are disputes that have been dismissed by the CCB and include those outside of the CCB's jurisdiction or are found in favor of the contractor.
Disputes Resulting in Orders to Pay. The CCB has issued a final order that the contractor pay damages or civil penalties for CCB disciplinary actions.
Disputes Closed by the CCB for Other Reasons. These are disputes the CCB has closed for reasons such as withdrawal or abandonment by the complainant.

*Many insurance companies do not contact the CCB when the policy is cancelled since they are not required by law to do so. Consumers may want to verify coverage is still in effect.
