Re: NJ Licensing Question


I have New Home Builder Registration license it's $200 per year, but for remodeling, you still need Home improvement contractor license which is $90 my renewal just came in.

Re: NJ Licensing Question


Guys please, registration. There is no license. I'm not licensed to do anything. I just fork over money and they add me to the list of jerks building crappy garages.

OP, you just need the basic Home Improvement Contractor Registration. The other stuff pertains to what big shots like Greg do involving finance stuff and costs more.
You want the $90 HIC Registration.

Listen to rrk and call Consumer Affairs. For whatever reason the website makes it seem like the most complicated thing in the world, but if you call or show up at your county's consumer affairs office you'll be out with door, registered, in 30 minutes. It's really really easy.

I mean honestly though, if not link sharing and sarcasm, what are you even here for?

$90 HIC registration and go build your residential garage. I've done it. It's not that hard. Nobody even asked to see the stupid piece of paper I paid the $90 for.

Speaking of stupid piece of paper, whatever happened to the badges we were supposed to wear when selling home improvements or bibles?

Re: NJ Licensing Question


I'd put it in the truck right next to my framed RRP certificate.

I'm pissed I never followed through on my idle threat to bring that to a framing shop and spend far too much money getting that mounted just to hang it high enough in the shop that nobody would have been able to get it down without bringing a ladder inside. That would have ensured it remained there forever.
