BEFORE YOU HIRE
Here are some of the rules, regulations, and laws governing contractors in Idaho

When do you need to hire a licensed contractor in Idaho?

The state of Idaho does not license general contractors working on private sector residential or commercial projects, however many local jurisdictions require licensing. Homeowners should check references, and perform due diligence when hiring a contractor.

How important is contractor licensing in Idaho?

The goal of the Idaho Division of Building Safety is to protect the public health, safety and welfare through the registration and regulation of those who provide contracting services in Idaho. Plumbing and electrical contractors must pass a trade exam to become licensed in Idaho.

Your liability risk when hiring a licensed contractor in Idaho

General Contractors in Idaho are not required to carry general liability insurance. It is always a good practice to only hire contractors with active liability and workers' compensation insurance policies. Request a copy of each certificate for your records before the project starts.

Financial recourse when hiring a contractor in Idaho

Homeowners can file complaints with the Idaho Attorney General's office of Consumer protection. To file a complaint about a plumbing, electrical, or HVAC contractor a homeowner can file complaints with the Idaho Division of Building Safety.

What else should I know before hiring a contractor in Idaho?

Idaho has minimal regulations on contractor licensing so it is the consumer's responsibility to perform their due diligence and ask for client referrals before hiring. The Idaho State Police Department also maintains a Website so Idaho citizens can run their own criminal background check if they are so inclined.
