The sweep began on October 15 and ended on October 19. Field investigators found violations ranging from working without a license to failure to follow lead-based paint license guidelines. Violations were also discovered in transit to and from the counties targeted in the sweep. Altogether, 142 job sites were checked and 41 violations were recorded.

The majority of violations were found at residential job sites. Oregon law requires nearly everyone who remodels, repairs or builds a home to be licensed by the Construction Contractors Board. Homeowners who wish to hire a contractor can verify their contractor’s license on the CCB website at http://search.ccb.state.or.us/search/.
