Obtaining your contractor's license is the number one way to differentiate yourself from all the other people out there who call themselves a plumber, electrician, carpenter, etc. In other words, you are letting potential customers know you are the real deal, an actual skilled tradesperson who took the initiative to go the extra mile in your trade to establish yourself as a professional. You took the time to do the work, study, and take the necessary examinations in your state to obtain your license, and you can do the best work for your customers. Once you have your license, you can then, with confidence, bid on the higher-priced jobs in your state that require a permit and perform them with confidence. The Contractor Licensing process is a bit overwhelming to some, but do not let this stop you from going for you license. Assistance is available!
