Hiring a Contractor
Depending on the scope of your project, licensed contractors may be required. Answer the questions below to find out if your project requires a professional or if you may do the work yourself.
May I do the construction work myself?
You may be able to do the construction work yourself if your project meets one of the following criteria:
If you do not meet either of these criteria, you must hire a City of Boulder-licensed contractor. A list of city licensed contractors is also available in the Planning & Development Services Center, 1739 Broadway, third floor. You can also find contractors in the local phone books and on the ICC website, but they must be licensed with the City of Boulder to perform the work.
If you do meet one of the above criteria and plan to do the work yourself, or if you plan to hire a licensed contractor, read the information listed below before you start the project.
The city license for contractors requires testing, but this does not mean that the city endorses these businesses.
