In the interest of the public health, safety, welfare, and consumer protection and to regulate the home building and private residence construction industry, the purpose of this chapter, and the intent of the Legislature in passing it, is to provide for the licensure of those persons who engage in home building, private residence construction, and home improvement industries, including remodeling, and to provide home building standards and to support education within the construction trades in the State of Alabama. The Legislature recognizes that the home building and home improvement construction industries are significant industries. Home builders may pose significant harm to the public when unqualified, incompetent, or dishonest home builders and remodelers provide inadequate, unsafe, or inferior building services. The Legislature finds it necessary to regulate the residential home building and home improvement industries.
