Question DetailsAsked on 1/11/2012

Regulations. Do you have a list for a contractor (Waterproofing Internal System). For example, proof of insurance, EPA booklet, etc

When a contractor comes to the home they should be required by law to provide specific information to the homeowner. What are the regulations for the State of NJ. For example, proof of insurance (certificate), EPA guide (booklet), signed contract with details of job including price and date to perform job, etc. Just want a checklist to verify the contractor is in compliance.

I have high regard as a contractor for the web site of Tim Carter for resources like you are asking for. He has prepared cheat sheets for homeowners wishing to purchase roofing, gutters etc. I think your expectation of a state requirement for a basement waterproofing contractor to operate in New Jersey is optimistic. I would look for

1- Proof of workmans comp & public libility insurance

2-State License


4-Membership in Better Business Bureau (A or A+ rating)

5-NO downpayment

Remember only guarentee,, Death & Taxes

ps There must be at least one year warranttee on workmanship & whatever period you can negotiate on the water control system

you can go to the NJ Dept. of Commerce website and type in any business name to verify they are licensed. NJ requires all Home Repair Contractors to obtain a NJ HIC license. This license number is required to be on any contracts or estimates they write.
It should look something like: 13VH12345678
Here is the link to the NJ website:
