Ask CHBA members for a bid on your upcoming project

Tell us about your project

Submissions will be reviewed, and then shared with all the CHBA members. They may contact you directly about your project. As always, please follow the Due Diligence tips below.

Due Diligence

The industry is unregulated in Newfoundland and Labrador, so it is up to the consumer to conduct due diligence when hiring a contractor.  Here are some tips to protect yourself:


In detail, the job you want or need done.

Get Informed

Do you need a permit?

Research Contractors In Your Area

Ask your friends and neighbours for names.

Get A List

Of qualified professionals from your local Home Builders’ Association or Better Business Bureau.

Get Estimates

From at least three different contractors and ask them for customer references.

Call the References

From the contractors you like. Be sure to make a list of questions you want to ask them.

Hire A Professional Contractor

Ask for written contracts and proof of Workers’ Compensation or private liability insurance for injury or damage to your home.


On the work you want done, the budget and the timeline.

Don’t Accept Offers For Cash Deals Without A Receipt

Paying under the table is no deal – it can leave you with no warranty, no recourse for poor workmanship and no liability insurance if an injury takes place on your property.

Get It In Writing!

If you pay under the table for repairs, construction or home renovation, you are participating in the underground economy – and you’re paying more than you think. For more information, visit the Get It In Writing website.
