Am I responsible for getting the permit or can the contractor I hire do it for me?

In Manchester, it is the responsibility of the property owner to obtain all of the necessary permits prior to any work being done.

Who should I hire for my demolition project?

Generally speaking, the contractor you hire should be experienced in the work and licensed and insured to handle the job.

In some states, you only need a license if the total project cost is greater than a certain dollar amount, and some states simply require contractors to be registered.

If your state requires a license, always make sure the contractor you hire has the proper licensing.

Our state-by-state contractor license guide is an excellent tool. You can learn your state’s licensing laws and make sure a specific contractor's license is up-to-date.

If a contractor's license number is not listed on their website or social media, quote sheets or contracts should show the contractor’s license number on the first page. If you don’t see it, this is a red flag. (Find out the other red flags!)

Never be afraid to ask a contractor for their license number, and make sure you understand the importance of having a bonded and insured contractor, too.
