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

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

Only certain types of specialty contractors (HVAC, plumbing, electrical) need to be licensed in Texas. There are no licensing requirements when it comes to hiring for a construction or major remodeling project.

How important is contractor licensing in Texas?

Texas does not have any government regulations in place to license contractors so the responsibility is on the consumer to do their homework before hiring. Specialty contractors in Texas are subject to a board examination.

Your liability risk when hiring a licensed contractor in Texas

If you are concerned about your liability, you should make sure to ask your contractor to provide evidence of workers' comp and general liability since the Board does not have any licensing requirements.

Financial recourse when hiring a contractor in Texas

The Texas Department of Licensing Regulation does not require contractors to carry a bond nor is there a state recovery fund.

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

Texas has some of the lightest regulations on home improvement contractors in the US so there is no financial or criminal background check performed on contractors in the State. The State's Department of Public Safety does maintain a publicly accessible database so consumers can run their own background check before making a hire if they are so inclined.

How is the BuildZoom score calculated?

The BuildZoom score is based on a number of factors including the contractor's license status, insurance status, verified work history, standing with local consumer interest groups, verified reviews from other BuildZoom users and self-reported feedback from the contractor.

Why you should hire through BuildZoom

Since there are no licensing requirements for most contractors in Texas, it is even more important for consumers to check references and past work. BuildZoom will save you time by automating a lot of this research. We collect client feedback and verify contractors' permitted history with dozens of local building departments in Texas, which saves you time and helps minimize your risk when hiring.

You should get several bids before hiring a contractor

Due to its lack of licensing and regulation for most contractors, the Texas Attorney General's office recommends getting several bids before hiring a contractor. Do not automatically accept the lowest bid - an abnormally low bid may indicate the contractor made a mistake and is not including the same work quoted by their competitors. We've made the bid collection process extremely simple (and free). Just click here to get started.
