Want to see if a home remodeling contractor is licensed at the state level?  You’re at the right place.

This list covers primarily the specific category of license called home remodeling contractor license.  This title differs from state to state.  For example, in some states it may be called a home improvement contractor license or home renovation contractor license.

In the event a state does not have this remodeling-specific license, you will need to check out general contractor licensing.

Licenses may be required for electricians, plumbers, HVAC, asbestos removers, and other sub-specialties.  Remember, this list covers only the state level.  Licenses may be required at the municipal or county level.
