When you work as a contractor in Wisconsin for residential jobs, you need a certification to get permits for one- or two-family houses you want to build. The Dwelling Contractor Qualifier Certification takes two steps to get.
First, do a 12 Hour Qualifier Course. The Wisconsin Safety and Buildings Division has a list of courses that are approved to qualify you. Then, fill out your application and send it to the State of Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services Safety and Buildings Division.
Continuing education is also important for Wisconsin contractors. Within every two-year period, you need to do a 12-hour Continued Education Course. If you don’t have it done 90 days before your certification expires, you’ll have to pay penalties.
Wisconsin makes renewing easy for you. The state let you know four to six weeks before your certification expires. You get a card if you’ve done your continuing education, and papers if you have not. Pay the renewal fee, and you’ll get a license number and a new expiration date.
Doing a commercial construction job in Wisconsin? You’ve got to get your plans reviewed before you can start. How do you know what you need to have reviewed? If your job is:
You send your plans to the Division of Industry Services. If the agency needs to, it will inspect your job at stages of construction. If you’ve got an approved plan but need to change it, you have to send the revision for review.
Remember, you also need to get local building permits, on top of your plan reviews.
The soil in Wisconsin is mostly a silt loam combination. It drains well, but because silt is so fine, it erodes easily. Be careful as the silt at your construction site dries. Dry silt gets picked up by the wind, so look at the weather each day before you start.
Many excavators and boom lifts have four-wheel-drive, perfect for working in silt conditions. Get machinery with stabilizers and supports once it’s parked, to give yourself a firm spot to work from.
Renting your Wisconsin construction equipment is the way to go. After all, you can get the sizes you need for only the days you need them. Plus, BigRentz takes care of machine storage and maintenance. That way, all you need to focus on is doing a good job.
