California Construction Forms
California contracts and contracting is a whole new game


No state in the nation is more regulated when it comes to contracts and contractors than California.

This use most evident when it comes to contracts with consumers. Commercial contracts, those contracts between contractor and commercial businesses, are regulated but considerably less than those between contractor and consumer. That is because business people are more familiar with contracts. A homeowner may not be familiar with the various nuances.

California has, arguably, the toughest consumer protection laws in the nation. Contracts and contractors are closely regulated. They are governed by the Contractors State License Board, an agency of the Department of Consumer Affairs.

Contracts are so scrutinized that even the size of print, in consumer contracts, is regulated. Those sections the state considers most important are required to be printed in superlarge size.

Every contractor falls under the regulations. The most stringent protections involve contracts and contractors who deal directly with the public.

Most consumer difficulties involve Remodeling. Siding and Decking, Roofing, HVAC (Heating/Ventilation, Air conditioning).

That's not to say there can't be difficulties with other home improvement projects including Landscape, Swim/Spas/Pools, Plumbing, Solar, Tile, Electrical, Painting, Flooring, Masonry, Concrete, Lath and Plaster.

Difficulties can be greatly reduced. First, determine that the contractor is licensed and the license is current. This can easily be done through your local office of the Contractors State License Board which can be found in the telephone book under California state government.

Next, look at the contract which folks in that agency have recommended to many contractors. To view this contract, click here, then scroll down to:
