Welcome from RICRLB

State of Rhode IslandThe Rhode Island Contractors' Registration and Licensing Board ("CRLB") is the agency charged with regulating contractors in the State of Rhode and is governed by Rhode Island General Laws § 5-65-1 et seq. The CRLB claim process is an administrative alternative for property owners who are unsatisfied with the work of a contractor and who wish to resolve the dispute outside of court. A property owner nevertheless has the option to file a lawsuit against a contractor or to resolve the dispute in an alternate forum, such as court, mediation or arbitration.
