History
In the past Georgia has not required builders and contractors to be licensed. To improve the building environment and raise the bar on construction practices within the state, a law was enacted requiring licensing for residential and commercial general contractors and is effective July 1, 2008.

Licenses – What are the Designations?
Effective July 1, 2008, a license from the State Licensing Board for Residential and General Contractors is required for the following as per O.C.G.A. § 43-41-2:

Description – What Constitutes a Contractor?
Refer to the following – O.C.G.A. 43-41-2 Definitions at the following link

What does this mean to me the homeowner?
As of July 1, 2008, homeowners need to ask any builder, remodeler, or home improvement contractor (with the exception of a specialty contractor - i.e. roofer, painter, pool contractor, etc. - those who only perform one specific trade) who is being considered for any type of renovation or new home construction for proof of licensure. If your painter takes on the role of carpenter, drywaller and painter, then he is no longer a specialty contractor but a contractor who is required to be licensed. The State of Georgia has been licensing electrical, heating & air, and plumbing contractors for years and these contractors, though considered specialty contractors, will still be required to be licensed.

What Happens if I Hire an Unlicensed Contractor?
Working with an unlicensed contractor may put your project in jeopardy of being completed. Local building enforcement officials may place a stop work order on your project and fine and/or incarcerate the contractor, and any contract entered into with an unlicensed contractor will be considered unenforceable.
