Contractors -- Working in
You must be a licensed contractor
in Longmont to do contracting work in the City (Longmont Municipal Code 16.48.030).
As a homeowner you can act as your
own contractor and do the work without a contractor's license on your own
property where you live. However, if you subcontract a project, electrical
wiring for example, then the subcontractor must be licensed to work in Longmont.
You may as a homeowner be issued a permit for subcontracted work; however,
you are also responsible for inspections and sign-offs on the permit card.
Currently, the City of Longmont
does not have reciprocal licensing agreements with any other jurisdiction.
The City does honor however, test results from the International Code Council. Tests
are given at PearsonVu locations throughout the state. You may also find more information at the International Code Councils website
(www.iccsafe.org). You may also schedule a test thru the Building Inspection office.
