Find a Contractor
Choosing the right contractor is the first step towards a successful home energy retrofit. Using the search tool below, you can find a registered contractor for your home upgrade needs. Registered contractors consist of Program Registered Contractors (PRC), who have been trained and registered by program utility partners, and Home Performance Contractor Network (HPCN) members, who have been trained and registered by the Home Performance Stakeholder Council.
Working with a registered contractor means you are working with someone that is trained in industry best practices and is subject to ongoing quality assurance evaluations.
Do I need to work with a registered contractor?
You are required to work with a registered contractor to access the following rebates:
In the CleanBC Better Homes and Home Renovation Rebate Programs
- Insulation rebates require the use of a registered contractor
- It is recommended to initially use the Find a Contractor search tool below to identify a quality contractor. If you cannot locate a registered contractor in your region, you may choose to hire a Program Registered Contractors In-Progress. PRC In-Progress have completed best practice training and are nearing completion of their full PRC designation. Homeowners can use a PRC In-Progress and still receive insulation rebates through the Home Renovation Rebate and CleanBC Better Homes programs, if all other rebate requirements are met.
- Insulation PRCs In-Progress are listed here.
You are not required to work with a registered contractor to access all other rebates, although it is strongly recommended.
Training and Qualifications
Registered contractors have:
- Completed building science fundamentals training as well as best practice training specific to their industry.
- Registered with WorkSafeBC. Confirm the business’ current standing with WorkSafeBC prior to choosing a registered contractor.
- Maintained up-to-date business licenses, general liability insurance, standard warrantees, and good standing with WorkSafeBC.
What to expect from registered contractors?
In addition to meeting program business and training requirements registered contractors have agreed to comply with a code of conduct that prioritizes such values as fairness, integrity and honesty. They agree to charge customers a reasonable and competitive rate for service, provide equipment and installation warranties, advise about program rebates, handle customer complaints and ensure that their work meets the standard of industry best practices and is performed in a safe manner.
