B-2 Remodeling Contractors License

B-2 Remodeling Contractors License

The CSLB has provided an update on the new Remodeling Contractors License.

At the December 12th Board meeting, I asked for an update on the new remodeling contractors license. The Board stated that the new legislation has been submitted to the legislature and the bill has a sponsor.

It should go up for a vote sometime in 2020.  When it will be inactive, I don’t know.  Perhaps July 1, 2020, or January 1, 2021.

As I mentioned in a previous post, this new classification, called the B-2, will have a huge, positive impact on the construction industry and to business in California.

Sorry... couldn't pass it up!

The B-2 will allow so many more contractors obtain their license so that they can perform work legally, earn more money, and provide better assurances to consumers with CSLB oversight. And this new license should drastically reduce the number of underground contractors.

Because of the severe restrictions in place for obtaining the B classification, the B-2 will not include the framing component, which is the hardest part for most applicants to prove under the B.

We don’t know yet what the minimum experience requirements will be for the new B-2, so stay tuned.  As soon as I know, I’ll pass it on to you.

I’m pleased as punch that the new remodeling contractors license is going to happen!
