A lesson to home improvement contractors working DC: My newest clients both came to me with licensure issues.
The first had not forwarded his mail appropriately and, after his business status in DC was revoked and is late renewing his license, is shelling out $2,500.00 today for reinstatement, license renewal and processing fees.
A second client came to me after he was given a stop work order for not being licensed in DC. His fine? $10,000.00. Which he is happy to pay along with the $1,000.00 is new licensing, business setup and processing fees because the job he is working on is bringing his business $5 million.
I get that DC is tough to work with, believe me I deal with processing issues EVERY DAY and that is just the licensing side. The permitting side is a whole other story. But it is always better to do things the right way and avoid paying these insane amounts of money.
DC has a mere 1,250 or so licensed contractors compared to the 20,000+ in the State of Maryland. Ease of renewal is a big part of that. BD Contractor Services specializes in initiating and renewing DC Business Licenses for Home Improvement Contractors and Salespersons.
