Permitting and Contractor Licensing in Connecticut to Insulate

Hello Everyone,

If your working in Connecticut as a contractor, you need to be aware of the following for your own protection and that of your clients.

Here's a couple of questions and answers many contractor's are not aware of if you work within Connecticut. Below are my questions and the answer received from the State of Connecticut.

Question:

Is it a State requirement for a building contractor to pull/apply for a building permit to install spray polyurethane foam insulation? Can an out of state contractor, not registered in Connecticut, perform the services on behalf of a registered CT contractor without a building permit?

Answer:

I think I’m missing the question or that it is really two or three bundled together – if a building permit is required, then no services can be performed by anyone. 

If, instead, the question is whether anyone can be a subcontractor of a CT HIC without being registered, the answer is yes.  If they are an entity they may also need to have a certificate of authority from SOTS and, depending on the type of work, may also need a sales and use tax permit from DRS. 

Frauds Division................  dcp.frauds@ct.gov
