If the project you are planning is valued at $1,000 or more, the person doing the work must have a valid Virginia Contractor's License issued from the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR). Licenses are also issued with classifications and specialties that identify the type of work that may be performed. More information regarding contractor licenses is available from DPOR. Visit the Board for Contractors Regulations to see what Classifications are eligible to perform different types of work.
