Who needs a Minnesota Residential Building or Remodelers license?
All building contractors and remodelers who contract with a homeowner to construct or improve dwellings by offering more than one special skill must be licensed. Owners working on their own property must also be licensed if they build or remodel for the sole purpose of speculation or resale.
What are the steps in obtaining my Minnesota builders or remodelers license?
- Step #1: Pass both parts (Business/Law and Trades) of the Minnesota Contractor, Remodeler or Roofer License exams. Starting January 1st, 2013, there will be a 110 question test that includes Business and Trades questions.
- Step #2: Apply to the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry for a license.
- Step #3: Get the proper insurance.
Is continued education required for Minnesota builders and remodelers?
Yes, 14 hours of Minnesota State Approved continuing education is required for every two year licensing cycle. At least one hour of Energy Code must be included for every two-year licensing period. There is no requirement for one hour of lead paint. That requirement changed to Energy Code several years ago.
