Using Contractors Liscense to pull permits for another company
It has been some time since I have been on Breaktime, so I'm not up to speed with the current posts. I trust however that I can get some invaluabel advice here.
I am a small general contractor, who has been very slow for the last 3 months. As a way to possibly get some work I approached a new local company that installs solar collectors about doing any remodel work that might occur with their installations. I was greated enthusiastically. It seems that they had been using the contractors license of another man to pull permits, and this individual recently quit them. What they want from me is to pull permits, install the units on the roof, make any alterations to the structure to support the units. They have someone who would do any plumbing and electrical work, as I am not licensed for those areas.
I talked with the local building officials, who suggested that they should probably hane a HVAC contractor pull these permits, and that my doing this might be unwise. Frankly I am quite leary of the arrangement, and would like comments from others whom might be more knowldgable about situations like this. Thanks. fbart1
