New To Area - Need Help With License Requirements Please


Hello,

I will be constructing freestanding garages and attached garage renovation. After spending several hours researching NJ requirements, I cannot figure out what licensing will be needed.

Do I need just a GC license or a "Home builders" license, or both?

If someone can point me in the right direction - much appreciated!

I would go to the office of the municipality that you expect do be working in - Just ask what type of license is required there. - Adjacent municipalities will be the same or similar.

You can always find some differences, but it is a start.

Don't be surprised if the question of insurance and bonding comes up since you are a contractor.

I think you only need home improvement license.
