I am curious. I have been a GC for about three years now and am curious why I don't see GC's with multiples licenses. I am here in Arizona. Not sure if all the rules are the same, but you must have a license to practice as a GC, a license to do electrical, a license to do plumbing, and a license to do HVAC. This is for basic residential of course. I have looked at my books for last year and the costs I paid out to subcontractors for there expertise would easily pay for the licensing and bond for electrical and plumbing. Now minus the fact that maybe a GC doesn't have the expertise on staff for the work, why don't I see contractors obtainging multiple licensing so all the cash goes into there own pocket. Not to mention it reduces the percentage fo gross sales to subcontractors that my insurance requires I keep below 25%.
