People should be aware that Vermont will be requiring registration of contractors doing work that costs more than $10,000. The idea of the legislation is to develop a system of knowing who is doing home repair work, not too much more, though perhaps the beginning of recognizing the trade of home improvement contractors. Here is a summary of the law from the Secretary of State’s web site:
What does residential contracting mean?
Residential Contracting is defined as to build, demolish, or alter a residential dwelling unit, or a building or premises with four or fewer residential dwelling units and includes the following:
• Interior and exterior construction, renovation and repair
• Installation or repair of heating, plumbing, solar, electrical, water or wastewater systems
