Hello, I will be helping you.
Anyone who performs improvements on residential property (single- or multiple-family dwellings of six units or less, condos or co-ops), when the individual job exceeds $200 and when the cash price of all work performed in one year exceeds $1,000 is considered a home improvement contractor and must register in order to legally operate in the state. The Department of Consumer Protection registers all home improvement contractors doing business in Connecticut, enforces the state's Home Improvement Act, and administers the Home Improvement Guaranty Fund for consumers.
The following require additional training and license:
crane and conveyor workelectrical workelevator workfire protection workglass work -- home and autohearth product (propane stove and fireplace) workheating, piping and cooling workhome inspectionirrigation workoperating stationary engineerplumbing worksheet metal work including ductworksigns and outline lightingsolar energy workspa and pool worktv, radio, and electronics workwelding, valves, and machinist workwell drilling
In NYC you need to obtain a Home Improvement Contractor license with the Department of Consumer Affairs. You can find the application at this link: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dca/downloads/pdf/HICChecklistPacket.pdf
New York State does not have license requirement on a state level and each municipality / county may require one on a local basis. You would need to inquire with each municipality / county where you intend to do work before commencing work.
These may be copy and paste but they do answer your questions. If you have a specific question about the information provided please let me know
Q: Is there anything more I need.
A: my answer provided that in CT you need to obtain such license and no additional license.
A: whereas in NYC you need to register with the Dept. of Consumer Affairs
A: NYS does not have a state wide license for home improvement. Rather it is done on a local basis with each municipality / county.
p.s. the reason experts use cut and paste is to provide as much information as possible within the limited context of what information we can provide on the site and the limitation on resources in answering questions. It does not mean that an expert (i.e. myself) are not familiar with the issue. It's just a way to provide you with the maximum information through the limited nature of this back and forth
please change the rating as I do not get compensated otherwise.
thank you and renewed good luck!
