My friend gave me a contact, how can I tell if they’re licensed?
There are several ways to verify if a contractor is licensed:
- Check ESA’s contractor look-up tool.
- Call 1-877-ESA-SAFE (372-7233) and choose option 3 for Contractor Licensing.
- Check the contractor’s estimate or business card. If they are licensed, the licence number should be on all their correspondence and even their vehicle. The number would look like this: ECRA/ESA 7999999.
