General Contractors Licensing MNMinnesota Contractors: An Easy Way to Check A Construction Company’s Contractor License—

You want to be sure the contracting company you are considering has a valid Minnesota state contractor’s license. This is very easy to do via the Internet.

Go to Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry Website and follow the instructions. We recommend searching by business license number, although you may also search by company name. Schoenberg Construction’s license number is BC133101. Search the Minnesota Department of Commerce license lookup search tool to verify all general contractor’s licenses.  Or you can call them direct at 651-284-5034 (Licensing).

Additionally, you will want to verify that the construction company has workers’ compensation and liability insurance.  It is best to request a current certificate of insurance be sent to you directly from the contractor’s insurance company.  To verify a contractor’s insurance, simply contact them and request proof of insurance. Any reputable company will be happy to do so and to do so quickly!

What’s the Best Way to Choose which General Contractor to Hire?

A thorough interview is the best way to select a general contractor for your project. Just as no job interview begins by negotiating salary, hiring a construction company should not be any different. Before you get to compensation, you want to be sure you have a qualified applicant. Right? Here are the top 5 questions to ask a building contractor:

  1. What kind of experience do you have on projects like mine?
  2. What will the project’s timeline look like?
  3. Will I need any permits or additional insurance before remodeling?
  4. How do you approach remodeling projects of this size?
  5. What exactly is included in the project’s bid?
