CONTRACTOR AND REMODELER LICENSE
Only companies are required to obtain a license (in the case of an individual, the license is issued to an individual proprietorship). However, each company must designate one individual who will serve as a "qualifying person" regardless of whether the licensee is an individual proprietorship, partnership or corporation. The qualifying person is the individual who must take the required examination and fulfill the continuing education requirements for the licensee.

New license applicants and licensees renewing their license must pay a fee into the Contractor Recovery Fund in addition to the license or renewal fee. The Contractor Recovery Fund replaces bonding requirements. The fee is based on the licensee's gross annual receipts for the licensee's most recent fiscal-year preceding the renewal or application.

The license period for residential building contractors, remodelers and roofers is April 1 through March 31 each year. All licenses expire March 31 of each year, even if the license was issued for only a part of the license period. To maintain an active license, all licenses must be renewed by March 31 each year, whether the license was issued for all or a portion of the license period.
