Hello, I had my old cast iron sewer pipes trenches out and replaced and the plumbing company didn’t seem qualified to do backfill and cement work. They didn’t compact the fill nor pin the new cement to old.
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.

What if I started a small business doing work "on the side" that became a larger undertaking. I created an LLC but had no idea about licensing requirements but am now ready to expand to full time. Will the board find me liable for fines after the fact? I've had no claims against me.

I have a case pending , where as I worked for a homeowner to do carpentry remodel on their residence. I was paid by the hour and turned over receipts to get reimbursed for material. They pulled the permit. I told them I couldn’t pull the permit because I’m not state license contractor. The job was over an 8 month timeframe. 13 invoices were paid. 2 invoices have not, for a total of $6125.00 due me. We went to court last Monday 6/14/21. The judge is reviewing the evidence and I’m waiting on his response. The couple also got divorced during construction and I was replace/ fired from the project. The attorney pointed out I had no business filing suit because I wasn’t licensed. I told him I was working directly for the homeowner as a carpenter and prior to the divorce the husband was working with me. So what are your thoughts. ...Read More
