Hiring a Contractor

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 issued in one of three classes; A, B, or C.  This determines the dollar amount of the contract.  Licenses are also issued with classifications and specialties that identify the type of work that may be performed.  More information regarding licenses is available from DPOR or the How to Become a Contractor in Fairfax County brochure.
