03-27-2012, 09:55 PM
Fellas, Lady Fellas. I have a question for the texas contractors. I was thinking about going door to door offering evap and condenser coil cleaning along with blower cleaning for a price. But will I need to have a contractor license to offer this? and what should I do prior to doing this?(contract, invoice, ex) I have my certified tech card but Im doing controls now and looking to make a little extra money doing side work and service calls. Also get my name out but want to do this legally and legit. Anyone feel free to comment. Thanks

Go to the T.D.L.R. website and look up the rules and regulations for contracting in texas and you will find a guide line of what you can and can't do and make sure you follow those rules the penalties are pretty harsh!!

In Texas you are required to have a registration card if you work with any hvac contractor which is basically a background check. then you have certified which is saying you been to school and can work as a technician also a background check

You need a contractors license which requires 3 years verifiable field experience. Then you get to buy insurance.
