CONTRACTOR REGISTRATION
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

All contractors doing work authorized by a building permit must first register with the Village. In order to register, each contractor fills out an application. The form is available here and through our office in the Kaptur Center. By their signature on the form, the contractor indicates they are aware of and will comply with the Village Codes and Permit requirements. This is not proof of their knowledge or skill but it does show their willingness to do the job right. It is not uncommon that the property owners get their own insurance when hiring contractors.

Also, the Village requires a copy of the current valid contractor’s license or certification for all electricians, plumbers, and roofers issued by the State of Illinois or City of Chicago. The State does investigate claims against contractors and will invalidate licenses and certifications and prosecute related criminal behavior. See Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation http://www.idfpr.com/DPR/ or 312-814-6910.

The Building Department keeps a list of all contractors registered in the Village and makes this information available upon request. Many contractors pre-register as a way to attract clients. Hiring a qualified and registered contractor can help you get your project completed without violations and inspection failures. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns about contractor registration or building permit requirements. For more information, contact Jose or Joe at 708-671-3730.
