Hello All, I am hoping someone can help me out I am considering beginning a painting business and would like to know if there is any license required to begin? Also it would be nice if someone could point me in the direction of a good insurance company.

Thank you

There are only two trades that require a liceince: plumbing and electrical. General Contracting, painting, landscaping, etc. do not.

Insurance is wise, of course.
