Industry licensing requirements seek to reduce the risk of harm by creating minimum standards of competency and insurance coverage.
Specialty contractors may be limited on the work they are authorized to perform and may not be able to hire subcontractors.
Common types of specialty categories include plumbing, concrete, swimming pool, landscaping, roofing, and HVAC contractors.
To obtain a specialty contractor license, you must be able to demonstrate competency, whether through education, references, or both,
in the particular field to which you are applying. Different contractor license classifications may require the passage of
specialized state trade exams. Furthermore, you may be required to provide a surety bond, proof of insurance, and/or financial
statements in order to demonstrate your financial ability to operate your specialty business.
Recently, state and local governments have revamped efforts to prevent the operation of unlicensed contractors through state-run
task forces and campaigns to increase public awareness. Specialty contractors operating without a license may face harsh civil and
criminal penalties, ranging from fines to imprisonment.
