Do I need a contractor's license to get a permit?
A homeowner getting a permit for performing construction work on his/her own dwelling does not require a contractor's license, but will need to sign an acknowledgement form indicating compliance with the state law prior to issuance of the permit. If a homeowner hires a contractor for any type of construction on a home, the contractor shall be licensed by the City and County of Broomfield. The contractor is responsible for obtaining all required permits, but the homeowner should verify that the necessary permits have been issued. All contractors who perform work for pay or other compensation are required to be licensed as a contractor in City and County of Broomfield.
