Prime contractors (those working directly with the owner) looking to perform residential remodeling are required to obtain a Home Improvement license for the Board of Licensing Contractors. The following counties have adopted this requirement: Bradley, Davidson, Haywood, Hamilton, Knox, Marion, Robertson, Rutherford and Shelby. Employees of a contractor are exempt from the license, as well as residential homeowners performing their own work. Part of the license application process includes submitting a $10,000 surety bond, as outlined under Public Chapter 460, Title 62, chapter 6, Section 506 of Tennessee Code Annotated. The surety bond acts a protection in the event the contractor violates the terms of the contract.
