Concrete Contractors: How To Obtain Your License In New Hampshire
We want to first mention very quickly that you can’t begin the licensing process without having insurance or possessing surety bonds. If you plan on employing multiple contractors and working on bigger projects, then insurance/bonds are an absolute must. You will need to contact your local regulators to learn more about the specific requirements. The city of Manchester, for example, requires a surety bond of $5,000 and a payment bond of $10,000.
If you plan on providing services as a concrete contractor, then you will also need a business license. This will ensure that you will have met all the necessary requirements to earn your contractor’s license, including unemployment and general liability insurance.

Many reputable contractors are also listed in the database of the New Hampshire Home Builders Association. Associations in general are a great way to elevate industry standards and ensure quality customer service. As we mentioned earlier, the state of New Hampshire doesn’t regulate the licensing process for general contractors. However, the New Hampshire Home Builders Association will require you to uphold a certain standard of service.
