Re: How To Get General Contactors License In Arkansas

wow small world i live in arkansas. I work as a finish carpenter in the conway little rock area I live in morrilton so i get to travel i bet you know how that is. anyways i have flirted with the idea of getting my gc license and have found a few resource sites here i one i believe might help you guys out some.
i left the www part out so it will let me post it on here its not a link so you will have to type it. it wont let me post a link as i have not had enough posts
on this site for some reason. anyways the site has some good info on all the states and AR is on there a well. I hope it will be of some use to you and your
partner, I hope we can keep in touch on here maybe I could trim a few of your houses for you if you guys didnt do that yourselves or something take it easy

Re: How To Get General Contactors License In Arkansas

Hello Josh,

Thanks for you info. we will reserch it, I was in Conway this weekend, I have a uncle that lives there, it is a growing place for sure, I am not sure if this partner thing is going to work, I have been doing just fine on my own, he is the one with the most experience in the field but I am learning and if I dont know how or dont have time I hire it done, so maybe if you get over this way you can do some trim work for me, I have never trimmed out one yet but would like to learn.

Thanks Tim

Re: How To Get General Contactors License In Arkansas

The contractors liscensing board is located behind Home Depot off Mccain in north Little Rock, just show up there with 35$ and buy a book to study. I would just say get it online but they will be able to give you a lot of additional information to help. There are mostly questions about taxes and workers compensation. hope I have helped.
