If a builder were to be REQUIRED to have a License or Certification and that License subject to SUSPENSION or REVOCATION if proven time and time again that the suspect Builder was in FLAGRANT, SERIOUS, CRITICLE, violations of KENTUCKY Building Codes, Should not a proper Governing Agency persue such Suspensions or Revocations? If a SUSPENSION or REVOCATION were to occur...then said Builder would not be allowed to practice in any County in Kentucky REQUIRING Licensing UNTIL said SUSPENSION or REVOCATION was lifted or decision OVERTURNED. Anyone DISAGREE?
Definitely

I can see all but bonded, unless it was a job that requires it. Liability insurance covers the home owner for shabby jobs. If people didn't try to save a couple dollars to get these fly by nighters they wouldn't have these problems.
great idea

the tasks to become bonded or licensed are fairly rigorous....thus the reason i, as a small time carpenter/floor installer am not neither bonded or licensed. they are difficult and rigorous for a reason. to keep small time people out of the business. I agree strongly with the insurance aspect. with every lawsuit and liability problem out there, its not only a good idea, but a great start of credibility for your customer. It is not cheap, but it also weins out the lower class carpenters/contracters. A good set of references and former jobs go a long way.
I am for it

We will be watching for Grayson County to follow in Hardin County's (Elizabethtown's) footsteps. For whatever they do Grayson County--Leitchfield is sure to follow!

State builder certification and licensing is here!

There is enough government intrusion in our lives as it is. If I want to hire a person off the street to build a house out of straw and mud, it is my business- not anyone else's. A person who would hire a builder (licensed or not)or buy a house without doing their own due diligence is not ready to own a house anyway.
You are sooo wrong

This will soon be a state law for KY home builders to follow and new home owners to have better housing.

I'll fix it for you- This will soon be a state law for KY home builders to follow (unless the inspector isn't looking) and force new home owners to have far more expensive housing or continue renting.

All home builders are already "supposed" to building to KY building codes with the building inspectors doing "supposed" proper inspections of those newly constructed homes.

State Licensing/Certification requirements would cost the "Builder" a yearly fee for his STATE HOME BUILDERS License and ATTEND Continuing Education classes yearly to maintain his CERTIFICATION requirements. This out of the HOMEBUILDERS pocket not the HOME BUYER.

The builder "could try to pass" the cost of cert/lic onto the first couple of home buyers but not "EVERY" home buyer the builder builds for, or that builder would be bankrupt by his competition of newly "Legitimized" Professionally Certified and Licensed Home Builders of KY.

What does your Grayson county Health Dept environmental representative tell you Grayson County builders, is he 4 or against State cert. and licensing of KY home builders?

It is your profession isn't it?
Sounds good to me

This should be interesting to hear what the politicians say themselves publically as they try and secure the "HOME OWNER" vote in 2014.
