Remodeling Contractor – San Jose – Licensing
In the state of California, contractors are regulated by the Contractor State License Board (CSLB) which is a division of the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA).
For residential remodeling projects, there are two “types” of contractors you will deal with.
A general contractor can run a remodeling project from start to finsih, doing all the work in house or subcontracting to specialty contractors (or other generals) as needed.
In California, a general contractors license is referred to as a “B” license, because that is the CSLB designation.
A specialty contractor is licensed in a specific speciality, be it electrical, plumbing, tile, concrete, etc, etc.
There are a few dozen specialty classifications, and they start either with the letter C or the letter D.
C-10 is an electrical license
C-46 is a solar license
C-36 is plumbing
A full list is available on the CSLB website.
What really matters is; how do you verify a license?
