How do you find out if a contractor is licensed?

Except for plumbers and electricians, tradesmen paid by the hour usually don’t need a license. Contractors bidding on any significant work (more than a few hundred dollars) need a license in most states. If you have a problem with a licensed contractor or tradesman, the state licensing board can be a powerful ally in resolving issues. Get into a dispute with an unlicensed contractor or tradesman and you’re on your own.

All construction contractors need liability and workers’ compensation coverage. Request a certificate of insurance from the contractor you select. Insurance carriers provide certificates showing policy limits and coverage dates. There’s usually no charge for these certificates.
