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: 

  1. Check ESA’s contractor look-up tool.
  2. Call 1-877-ESA-SAFE (372-7233) and choose option 3 for Contractor Licensing. 
  3. 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.
