NARI-HIC Staten Island Home Improvement Contractors Association
is a non-profit Trade Association with General Members who are licensed, reputable contracting firms dedicated to professionalism, quality workmanship and customer satisfaction and with Associate and Affiliate Members who fully take part in and support them.
Our members must be licensed by the Department of Consumer Affairs (or ap- propriate agency for specialized trades) for a minimum of (3) three years before joining, and undergoing our screening process. This process includes checking the firm’s complaint record with the licensing agency and obtaining written references from applicants, banks and suppliers. If screening results are favorable, a two thirds majority vote of approval by our Membership is then required before formal acceptance of the applicant.
The Directory has been prepared for the consumer as part of our efforts to educate the community as to how to choose a contractor, and to alert homeowners of the risks involved in dealing with unlicensed contractors.
In addition to providing this free referral service, we act as a clearinghouse for consumer complaints against Member contractors and we have several ongoing programs in connection with consumer education and protection.
As part of our effort to maintain our standards of quality and professionalism, we encourage you to correspond with us, relating your experience with any of our Member firms.
