YOUR CONTRACTORS

SELECT THE RIGHT CONTRACTOR
As you begin your next building restoration job, please check to see that your contractor of choice is a member of The Building Restoration Contractors Association to ensure a quality job, done right the first time. Our member contractors utilize a skilled, highly trained union workforce and adhere to all local laws and safety standards required by the New York City Buildings Department and other public agencies that regulate construction work in New York. All BRCA member contractors have obtained the Special Rigger License issued by the New York City Department of Buildings requiring the passing of a licensing test and proof of workers compensation and general liability insurances. This ensures that the building owner, the management company and their insurance companies will not bear more than their share of compensation for those who may be injured on the job.

Investigate the Contractors Who Bid on Your Projects

  • Special Rigger License Check: Obtain each bidder’s “Special Rigger” license number. Call the Department of Buildings or visit their website at http://www.nyc.gov/html/dob/html/home/home.shtml to confirm the bidder’s license remains in good standing, to determine whether complaints have been filed against the bidder and to ensure the name on the license is correct
  • Safety Certification: Require that the bidder make a written representation that all employees performing work on scaffolding have passed the New York City scaffold safety course.
  • General Liability Insurance: Demand that the bidder submit proof of their level of general liability insurance at the time of the bid. Verify that the name of the company is the same as the name on the policy.
  • References: Request the contact information for the general contractors and building management companies for jobs your bidder performed within the last two years. Ask the bidder for the location of the job, the scope of the work performed and the dollar volume on the job; and call the references.
  • Project Managers: Ask to meet the bidder’s project manager for your project and demand a copy of his credentials, including a work history.
  • Check Union Status: Check to confirm that the contractor is a union contractor with Bricklayers Local Union 1. Some contractors may maintain agreements with other unions that have no expertise or training programs in exterior restoration.
