Anyone who contracts or offers to contract with a homeowner to improve residential real estate will need a residential building contractor or residential building remodeler license. The only exception to the license requirement is a business entity that is exempt. To view the exemptions, visit the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry website. The difference between a residential building contractor and remodeler license is that a building contractor can work on new and existing buildings, while the remodeler can only work on existing buildings.
The Minnesota contractor and remodeler license program requires each business entity to obtain a contractor or remodeler’s license. Each business entity must designate a “qualifying person” to obtain a contractor or remodeler license. The qualifying person to become licensed must complete the written Residential Contractor Licensing Exam. To learn more about how to get your contractors license, visit our how to obtain a license page.
