Contractor License

In 1991, the West Virginia Legislature enacted WV Code §21-11 of the State Code. This law was established to set specific professional guidelines for contractors as well as to protect state businesses and consumers who utilize their services. The law established the Contractor Licensing Board which is made up of state code officials, contractors and construction specialists.

The West Virginia Division of Labor acts as the compliance arm of the Contractor Licensing Board. Our inspectors perform routine inspections and investigate claims of unlicensed contractor activity. This program also ensures that all contractors comply with WV state tax, worker compensation and unemployment laws along with state wage bond requirements.
