My name is Scottie McDonald. I work for a commercial roofing company in Garland Texas. We are considering submitting a job bid as a sub-contractor to a General contractor. The job bid is for the roofing for a new commercial building in Baton Rouge. In considering what to include in a budget and other planning efforts I have a few questions that I was hoping you could help me with:
1) Would we be required to apply for a business license?
2) If yes what is the cost of this and how long does the process take?
3) Would we need a construction permit?
4) If yes what is the cost of this and how long does the process take?
5) Would we need a contractor’s license?
6) If yes what is the cost of this and how long does the process take?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
