All builders and remodelers in Texas are required to register with the commission if they build new homes or work on an interior remodeling job that either costs $10,000 or more or that, regardless of cost, changes the square footage of the home’s living space. Registration includes a criminal background check and requires builders and remodelers to provide a set of minimum warranties for their work.

Before hiring a builder or remodeler, consumers should ask for proof of registration or contact the commission to make sure the builder or remodeler is a reputable, registered business.

Consumers should always ask for references when hiring a builder or remodeler. It is also a good idea to contact the local Chamber of Commerce or Better Business Bureau for more information about anyone who may work on a home, even if they do not have to register with the commission.

Registered builders/remodelers should have a commission-issued registration certificate or wallet card to verify proof of registration. Additionally, the commission has an online searchable database to verify builder/remodeler registration. The database contains all current registered builders’ and remodelers’ names, DBAs, cities and registration numbers. Consumers may also verify a builder/remodeler’s registration by calling (877) 651-TRCC or looking on the internet at http://www.trcc.state.tx.us.
