Here’s how to understand construction permits and licenses.

Have you ever been curious about the different types of construction permits and licenses? What about licenses for specific contractors and companies? Before starting any building project, it’s important to make sure the proper permits are in order, and this should be factored into the budget for your project. We’ll give you more details on today’s blog, but rest assured you are in good hands with Y Rock Trucking. For more information about construction practices, visit our blog.

All construction companies are required to maintain a general business license. As far as specific construction licenses go, those vary by state and area. It’s important to research your state requirements, or ask your contractor for information about them. Any contractor should be able to tell you the requirements for your project and tell you the specific certifications they hold. They should also show you a portfolio (you can view ours here).

Some states have general requirements, but industries might have specific licenses needed too, like for electricians, drywalls or roofers. If your contractor is in charge of a large, multi-faceted project, they should be checking the certifications needed for all areas of the project and all people they’re hiring.

Most construction projects, even many home improvement projects, will require a building permit. This process can vary depending on the size and scope of the project, but generally this requires an application, blueprints or plans, and inspections from building authorities. Trade workers such as house painters or carpet installers are unlikely to need permits.
