If you are looking to build a new home or carry out any significant structural renovations to your property chances are you are going to need a licensed builder. Licensing indicates that the contractor has met certain minimum standards and is designed to protect you from untrained and unqualified operators.

Depending on where you live, builders will typically hold a particular class of licence. This specifies what scope of work they are allowed to carry out. The class may, for example restrict the licence holder to only working on low rise buildings or home renovations. This will be detailed on the builders licence, alongside his name, registered address, licence number and the expiry date of the licence.
