Colorado Construction and Home Improvement AssociationsWhile Colorado does have the means to supply some of the most desired products for detailed work within the field of construction and home improvement, such as granite, limestone, and many different wood variations; it is the construction and home improvement services themselves that make up much of these industries within the state. Unlike other states throughout the country, Colorado only requires contractors that work in the plumbing and electrical industries to be licensed or registered through the state. General contractors, roofers, and other such contracting positions can be registered in their local areas, but this is not required. It is, however, necessary for contractors to carry a specific amount of insurance on their business if they are planning on doing projects that are valued at $10,000 or more.

Even with the lax licensing requirements within the state of Colorado for contractors that provide services in areas of construction and home improvement, there are special professional associations and trade boards that are in place. These organizations help to maintain structure in the construction and home improvement industries so that employees that provide services in these fields have access to safe and secure business practices. Some of the more reputable professional associations and trade boards that are available to employees within the construction and home improvement industries include:
