  • IF YOUR SEARCH RETURNED 0 RECORDS, YOU MAY WANT TO TRY SEARCHING UNDER "RESIDENTIAL BUILDERS" LICENSING BOARD.
  • When searching for a specific licensee, search either the COMPANY NAME or the INDIVIDUALS NAME; you CANNOT search both together. Enter just a few letters to do a multiple search listing if you don't know the exact way a person or company is licensed.
  • When SEARCHING by license number, ENTER NUMBERS ONLY. do not enter G or M.
  • Do not use any punctuation marks when searching a "Company name"
