    Top Reasons to Become a Licensed Contractor

    Last updated 8 days ago

    If you love working with your hands, why not turn a job you love into an even better career? As a licensed contractor, you will be able to bid on larger and more profitable construction projects. You will also be able to subcontract the labor to others, which means you can say goodbye to backbreaking work if you’d like. But the biggest advantage by far of becoming a licensed contractor is that you own your own professional construction business. Here is a closer look at a few good reasons to obtain your AZ contractor’s license

    Make More Money

    In the state of Arizona, construction jobs worth $1,000 or more can only be performed by licensed contractors. This means that by simply obtaining your contractor’s license you open up the door to larger and more profitable jobs that you could never have bid on before. Presenting your contractor’s license to a prospective client can also help secure business for jobs under $1,000 that do not require a license, as it provides peace of mind to the homeowner or business.

    Buy Better Equipment

    Once you become a licensed contractor and get your construction business up and running, you will be able to write-off your equipment. This means that you can finally purchase the power tool set you’ve always wanted and write it off as a business expense, so long as you actually use the tools and equipment for work. The same applies for vehicles, gas, travel expenses, and more.

    The Arizona Contractor License Center is here to help you obtain your contractor’s license and get your construction business off the ground. In addition to AZ contractor exam preparation, we also provide license application filing and company setup services.

    Becoming a Licensed Contractor in Arizona

    Last updated 16 days ago

    All individuals or business entities in Arizona intending to engage in construction work totaling $1,000 dollars or more must first obtain a state-issued contractor license. Whether you are starting your own private contracting business or have been selected to act as the qualifier for your company’s license, there are specific steps that must be taken in order to become a licensed contractor. Here is a look at becoming a licensed contractor in Arizona.

    Prepare for AZ Contractor Exam

    There are over 40 different contractor classifications in Arizona, so you will have to decide what kind of contractor you want to be. Use your work experience and interests to determine which license you should apply for. Once you know which license you will be pursuing, contact a contractor license exam prep center to help you pass the Arizona Contractor Exam.

    Obtain a License Bond

    After you have secured your contractor’s license, you will need to apply for and obtain a license bond to protect your company and your clients in the event of bankruptcy or malpractice. Contact the Arizona Registrar or Contractors to find out how large the bond must be for your contracting specialty. If you plan to do residential construction work, apply to join the Contractor’s Recovery Fund.

    Fill Out Application Packet

    The only things left to do before you fill out the Contractor’s License Application Packet is to apply for your Arizona Transaction Privilege Tax Number and obtain insurance for yourself or your company. Submit the application packet with all of the required forms of identification and documentation, including insurance information, bond information, and exam information.  Then just sit back and wait for the Arizona Registrar of Contractors to process your license and send you a license number.

    What is the Building Confidence Program?

    Last updated 29 days ago

    As a contractor, you want to deliver the highest level of service and confidence to your clients. The Building Confidence Program, presented by the Arizona Registrar of Contractors, is a courtesy service that provides inspection and rating of residential construction workmanship. Both contractors and homeowners can request a Building Confidence visit within two years of completed work to ensure the quality of workmanship and to resolve any questions or concerns regarding home contract work. During this visit, a Building Confidence inspector will review the homeowner’s questions and perform a thorough evaluation of the contractor’s services. A written report establishing whether workmanship standards have been met is provided to both the homeowner and the contractor. Contactors can use the Building Confidence program as a positive reference for current and future clients to establish the high quality of your workmanship.
