Limited Service Specialty Contractors

Under O.C.G.A. and 43-41-17, specialty contractors who offer or contract to perform or undertake or perform for an owner limited, specialty, or specific trade contractor work do not have to hold a license as a residential or general contractor if they are performing work within their specialty. However, nothing in Chapter 41 shall permit a specialty contractor to perform work that falls within the licensing requirements of Chapter 14 of Title 43 where such specialty contractor is not duly licensed under such chapter to perform such work.

 

The Board for Residential and General Contractors has been directed by January 1, 2008, to identify specialty categories and scopes of work, allowing those specialties to contract directly with an owner without being a licensed residential or general contractor.

 

Anyone who is included on this list who is working for a licensed residential or general contractor under a valid permit is exempted from having to hold a residential and general contractor license of his or her own. However, such individual must ensure that he or she complies with any legal requirements (such as those found in Chapter 14 of Title 43) for his or her specialty trade.

 

The Board for Residential and General Contractors recognizes that limited service contractors can coordinate multiple specialty trades within the scopes of work listed below.

Traditional specialty contractors will not be required to carry a residential and general contractor license but will be required to comply with all applicable national, state, and local codes and ordinances.

 

The following list is under development and subject to change. If upon review, you believe an additional category of work falls within your scope of work please submit comments to the Board in writing.

 

Contractor School Online is not responsible when the Board is under development subject to change.

Traditional Specialty Contractors

Under O.C.G.A. § 43-41-17, specialty contractors who offer or contract to perform or undertake or perform for an owner limited, specialty, or specific trade contractor work do not have to hold a license as a residential or general contractor if they are performing work within their specialty. However, nothing in Chapter 41 shall permit a specialty contractor to perform work that falls within the licensing requirements of Chapter 14 of Title 43 where such specialty contractor is not duly licensed under such chapter to perform such work. The Board for Residential and General Contractors has been directed by January 1, 2008, to identify specialty categories and scopes of work, allowing those specialties to contract directly with an owner without being a licensed residential or general contractor.

Anyone who is included on this list who is working for a licensed residential or general contractor under a valid permit is exempted from having to hold a residential and general contractor license of his or her own. However, such individual must ensure that he or she complies with any legal requirements (such as those found in Chapter 14 of Title 43) for his or her specialty trade.

The Board for Residential and General Contractor recognizes that limited service contractors can coordinate multiple specialty trades within the scopes of work listed below.

Traditional specialty contractors will not be required to carry a residential or general contractor license but will be required to comply with all applicable national, state, and local codes and ordinances.

 

The following list is under development and subject to change. If upon review, you believe an additional category of work falls within your scope of work please submit comments or considerations in writing to the Board.
