Do I need a License?
If you are any person, business or consultant and any of the following, “You Need a Contractors License”
Working in all or any project:
- New construction
Performing work on any:

Project development or improvement must be licensed as a contractor if the total cost of labor and materials for a project is $500 or more.
A license is also needed to do any of this work as a subcontractor or specialty contractor.
There are several exemptions to licensure, that is, situations where a license is not required. Some of these exemptions are:
- Work for which the combined value of labor, materials and all other items is less than $500.
- Employees working for wages who do not customarily engage in independent contracting or control the performance of the job.
- Owner-builder with certain limitations.
- Installation or sale of finished products which do not become a fixed part of the structure with certain exceptions, for example, carpets.
