ASK THE BUSINESS LICENSE GURU

By David Yount

Question:

“What is a Specialty Contractor?”

Answer:

A specialty contractor can perform contracts relating to the specialty in which they are licensed. In some cases, specialty contractors obtain licensure by submitting the appropriate classification on a general contractor application. In other cases, states may have a separate application that is unique to that specialty.

The most common specialties with respect to licensing are electrical, HVAC, plumbing, home improvement, roofing and solar . These licensing categories may exist at the local level, depending on the state(s) in question.

The construction industry is one of the most heavily regulated in the U.S., and each state has unique contractor licensing laws, specialty classifications, and application requirements. LicenseLogix has extensive experience regarding specific jurisdictional requirements.
