We are LA State Licensed General Contractors (both residential & commercial) as well as a design/build consultant firm. What this means for our customers is that the LA State Licensing Board of Contractors (LASLBC) has done the regulation leg work that every home/business owner should do but sometimes simply over looks or just doesn’t know what questions to ask a contractor. The LASLBC regulates those of us with licenses by making us place them as certificate holders of our insurance. All certificate holders are sent notices when a company is late on a payment or is dropped by their insurance carrier. If we are dropped, we lose our license. The LASLBC requires we attend so many hours of pre-approved/certified continuing education every year along with our annual license renewal. Failure to comply with these strict guidelines results in rejection of the applicant’s license renewal. The LASLBC also checks references before issuing a license. Please feel free to call the LASLBC in Baton Rouge and ask about our standing in any of the above areas. They can be reached at 225.765.2301 or on line at http://www.lslbc.louisiana.gov/
