I am trying to find a carpenter to change all the cabinet doors and drawer fronts as well as countertops & backsplash.

Does this person need a contractor license?

Unfortunately, a carpenter is not a regulated trade like a plumber or an electrician. Unfortunately anyone can And pay $18 buy a hammer get themselves a pouch place a free ad on the Internet and the way Yourself a profession That I love Is the Europe Carpenters that come here that go and claim that they have masters in carpentry that is not so there is no car in Europe, Germany, Italy, Spain, so. The best thing that you can do is to look up the work that he's done in the past references and then good old God instinct if he gives you a little bit of bad feeling, it's time to change him out to do carpentry Those are two different trades cabinet makers and guys that are going to change out your cabinet doors in front that doesn't take much scale but go get yourself someone that has a bit of history behind Pro

No you do not need a license to do cabinetry removal and refurbishing or reinstall. Make sure to do your due diligence ask for references and any liability insurance if they are a business to help with your decision making process. Best of luck

Hello!! First things first! No, a contractor does not nor does the city require a contractor to have a licence to do any interior (non structural or electrical) work on a residential residence. However I would not recommend hiring any contractor without a business license or insurance certificate. Any professional contractor should be registered and insured for liability reasons. They should also present an estimate and contract before any work commences.

A contract protects both the home owner and contractor.

No, but cabinet install's require specific experience & a general carpenter may not have this. Some installers are not carpenters but are great at cabinet installs. Check references
