LICENSING. At the time of registration of an upgraded business, The Bath Haus DOES NOT confirm the prospective contractor / service professional has all applicable required state-level trade licensing. Certain states may require state-level licensing for projects above specified dollar amounts. We recommend you confirm these licensing requirements with the business and the applicable state and local licensing authorities. In some states, licensing may be required by the county or local authority in which the work is being performed. We recommend you confirm these licensing requirements before proceeding with your project. Larger projects often require the use of sub-contractors for specific types of work (for example, a kitchen remodel may require an electrician or plumber). We recommend you verify all the sub-contractors doing work on your project carry the appropriate licensing.

NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA USERS. Given the unique nature of California licensing, The Bath Haus relies on representations of service professionals using a California General building contracting license to cover home improvement tasks that such contractors / service professionals are performing more than one task as defined and required by California licensing rules. We recommend you ask the business to provide you with a copy of their license.
