Additional Services

To become a residential contractor in Austin, Texas, it's essential to follow the city's specific requirements. Firstly, all contractors, including trade contractors, general contractors, and homeowners acting as contractors, must register with the City of Austin before commencing any construction work associated with a building or trade permit. The registration process involves providing detailed information about the contractor's responsibilities, which vary based on the role (e.g., general contractor vs. trade contractor). General contractors, for instance, are responsible for obtaining and activating the building permit, scheduling inspections, and ensuring the work complies with the approved plans. Trade contractors, on the other hand, must activate trade permits and manage all aspects related to their specific trade, such as electrical, plumbing, or mechanical work.

Registration is straightforward and involves creating an account on the Austin Build + Connect (AB+C) platform, submitting the necessary information and documentation through a web form, and then waiting for confirmation and assignment of a Contractor/Homeowner PIN number. It's important to note that while general contractors in Texas do not require a state license, professional trade contractors must have the appropriate license and registration for their trade.

Once registered, contractors can activate permits, schedule inspections, and begin work. The process is designed to ensure that all construction work in Austin meets the city's standards for safety and quality. For more detailed information and step-by-step guidance, please visit the official City of Austin Contractor Registration page? (AustinTexas.gov)?.
