Check a contractor's license
As a consumer, it is beneficial to check a contractor's
license number before allowing work to be done on your project.
Building Codes Division issues licenses to four types
of trade contractors: electrical contractor, elevator contractor, plumbing contractor,
boiler contractor. Every trade contractor must also possess an active Building Contractor
license issued by the Construction Contractors Board (CCB). It is a good idea to check
the status of both licenses.
