The State of Colorado does not hold formal reciprocal licensing agreements for General Contractors in other states. This is because licensing in Colorado is handled at the local-level rather than the state-level. Licensing requirements are determined by the county, city or municipality in which the contractor chooses to work.
Out-of-state contractors who want to work on construction projects in Colorado must contact their local codes official or building department to determine what is required.
In some cases, licensing may be reciprocal if the contractor has taken and passed the ICC examination, as many cities in Colorado require contractors to pass the ICC exam as part of the licensing process.
*General Contractors should always notify the local licensing board if they hold a license in another state.
