What types of contractor licenses are offered in Alabama?

In Alabama, licenses are divided into two types:

    Home Builders are further divided into two categories:

Unlimited Home Builder – New Residential Buildings and Repair:

Nothing herein shall prevent any person from performing these acts on his or her own residence or on his or her other real estate holdings. Anyone who engages or offers to engage in such undertaking in this state shall be deemed to have engaged in the business of residential home building.” – per the Ala. Code 34-14A
