Checking Licenses

Working with a licensed remodeling contractor protects you and your property.

Licenses are different than certifications and association memberships.

  • Benefits of working with Licensed Professionals include:
    • Signifies they are registered to handle work valued over $500
    • Provides access to the Guaranty Fund
    • CSL licensees must have at least 3 years of experience as a contractor
  • To make sure your contractor is licensed, ask for their license number. (Any contractor who balks or hesitates is a risk.)
  • You can also look up a contractor’s license number online.
