What You Need to Know

New Hampshire is known for having the second lowest unemployment rate in the country with just 2.6 percent. In fact, the state has the opposite problem of most states — there aren’t enough people to take the many jobs that are available. If you choose to work in the construction industry in New Hampshire, you might be able to find a job more easily than other areas.

Contractor Licenses

New Hampshire doesn’t require licensing for general contractors through a state licensing board. Although, some counties and cities may require you to register to work in the city or county limits. Check with the local area government before starting any jobs, and make sure you complete any necessary paperwork. If the site does require registration, you will need to complete it before you can move on to securing permits.

General contractors don’t need formal licensing. However, there are specialty contractors that the state does require to have a license. These specialists include asbestos abatement contractors, electricians, plumbers, and lead abatement contractors. For more information about these professions, you should contact one of the following departments:

  • Asbestos abatement: New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services
  • Electricians: Office of Professional Licensure and Certification
  • Plumbers: New Hampshire Department of Safety
  • Lead abatement: New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services

Types of Soil

New Hampshire is most known for Marlow soil, which is the state soil. This is a well-draining soil with a firm substratum of basal. You can find Marlow soil in most areas of New Hampshire, from the White Mountains’ forested uplands to the rolling fields.

There are other types of soil beside Marlow soil. These types are grouped together and described as the following:

  • Loamy soil that drains well.
  • Sandy or loamy over a sandy texture that drains well or moderately well.
  • Sand and gravel that drain well or drain excessively.
  • Poorly draining soil with a high water table. You’ll typically find water within 12 inches below the surface.

If you check out the area beforehand, you can figure out what you’ll need to do to prepare the soil for erosion and sediment control. You can also figure out what equipment will work best in the area. For example, if you need aerial equipment, you can use your pre-job assessment to decide what types of manlifts, boom lifts, forklifts, and scissor lifts you need to bring.
