Alabama lawmakers have amended provisions of the Home Builders Licensure Board Act (the “HBLB Act”)
The legislature amended the definitions to now include the term “Improvements.” An Improvement is defined as “[a]ny site –built addition or enhancement attached to or detached from a residence or structure for use and enjoyment of a homeowner.” This definition is broadly drafted to cover more projects, yet retains the minimum contract amount of $10,000.00 per project.
The roofing industry will be impacted most, however. Any and all residential roofing projects are subject to the licensure requirements and oversight of the Board. Further, unlike home improvement or new build projects, the threshold for licensure is for any project in excess of $2,500.00.
