Getting Contractor Licenses in Washington, DC
Getting a contractor’s license in DC (general contractor or home improvement contractor) is complicated. It usually frustrates people a lot because the process is so arduous. Even figuring out which license is required can be confusing because of DC’s specific requirements, and in one case you actually have to get another license as a requirement to obtain the contractor license. A lot of time is involved, because multiple trips to the licensing agency can be necessary. Deciding what paperwork is required, including documents you have to provide, is baffling. Making things worse is that the licensing agency’s requirements are confusing at best and many of their specific requirements are either ambiguous or simply not listed at all in the information they give potential licensees. You even have to get the timing right, because if you don’t know everything, your documents might “expire” because the government requires them to have been issued within strict time frames. The DC Government’s requirements about contractor licenses are written into law, and the licensing agency cannot and will not make any exceptions.
