SB100 is here. Under this new consumer protection law, all home improvement contractors must register with the State of Pennsylvania by July 1, 2009. Yes, this means you: landscapers, handypeople, roofers, remodellers, etc. If you earn $5,000 per year or more from your home improvement business, you qualify.
This new law not only requires registration with the state but also includes regulation of the contracts that contractors use for jobs over $500. It also establishes criminal penalties for home improvement fraud. Here is the summary from the Attorney General's Office. This link also contains information for consumers with a home improvement dispute.
