Contractor License Look-up

Most, if not all, states have laws that require contractors to be licensed. For instance, Oregon law requires anyone who works for compensation (except bona fi de employees) in any construction activity involving improvements to real property to be licensed with the Oregon Construction Contractors Board (CCB) (ORS 701.005[5]). Some examples include:

  • Roofing
  • Siding
  • Painting
  • Carpentry
  • Floor covering
  • Concrete
  • Heating and air conditioning
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Tree service
  • On-site appliance repair
  • Manufactured dwelling installations
  • Land development
  • Home inspections
  • Most other construction and repair services
