Delaware is the second smallest state in the United States but there are still many construction opportunities. It is important to make sure you have the right permits and licenses before you begin building. You also need to pay attention to what type of soil you are working on as different types of soil require different types of equipment.
In the State of Delaware, you have to get the proper building permits before you begin construction. The state is divided into three counties which are New Castle, Kent, and Sussex. Zoning and developmental issues are typically taken care of at the county level. For example, in Sussex County, you need to turn in a Residential Standard Plan form before you can build. You also have to pay the fee of $100 and get the proper inspections.
On top of getting your building permit, if you plan on doing business as a contractor in the State of Delaware, you have to be licensed. To get a contractor’s license, you have to register and obtain a business license from the Delaware Division of Revenue.
The first step is to complete a Resident Contractors Package or a Non-Resident Contractors Package depending on which one applies to you. Once the Division of Revenue receives your completed package with the license fee, they will send you a business license, a “tax tips” package related to the activity of your business, and personalized business tax forms.
The type of soil can greatly affect what type of equipment you plan on using for your construction project. You might run into different types of soil depending on where you are building. For example, in New Castle County and Northern Kent County, you are most likely to run into heavy clays. In Southern Delaware, however, you are more likely to find sandy soils. Make sure you know exactly what type of soil you are working with before you rent your heavy construction equipment.
The type of project and the type of soil will decide which kind of equipment you need. Whether it’s aerial equipment like scissor lifts, boom lifts, manlifts, or forklifts, you need to know which one is right for you. You also might need earthmoving equipment such as skid steer loader, wheel loader, backhoes, dozers, excavators, or rollers. BigRentz can help with all of your construction equipment rental needs.
Before you start a project in Delaware, you need to have the right licenses, permits, and equipment. This will send you on your way to a great build.
