Verifying licensure can greatly reduce your chances of becoming a victim of contractor fraud and can save you time, money and damages in the long run. The Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors (LSLBC) now offers 3 different quick ways to verify licensure. Search results are returned in real time so contractors, homeowners, permit offices and the general public can access the most current licensure/registration information. 

3 Ways to Verify Licensure

  1. LSLBC’s website
    Use “Contractor Search” located at top of this webpage or click HERE. The Contractor Search feature offers several ways to search for a licensed contractor such as by Contractor name, license number, license type, location, etc.

  2. LSLBC Mobile Application (La. Contractor)
    Users can search the LSLBC database by company name, license number, or by the qualifying party’s name. Users can also use the app to file a complaint or report unlicensed activity.   Click HERE to view a short video about this new app! 

  3. TEXT-TO-VERIFY: 1-855-999-7896
    Text-to-Verify is a text messaging service which allows a user (at no charge) to quickly and easily verify licensure of a contractor. Text-to-Verify, works just like texting a friend by using the toll free number 1-855-999-7896. 
Here is how Text-to-Verify works:
  • On your mobile device open a new message
  • Type in the toll free number 1-855-999-7896 as the recipient
  • In the text box type either the License Number, Company Name, or Qualifying Party Name; (only use one of the search options per text)
  • If your search does not find a licensed contractor, your results will indicate “No company was found.”
