Contractor Registration
CONTRACTOR REGISTRATION

Electrical, plumbing and mechanical contractors, journeymen and apprentices are licensed through the State Construction Industries Board .  Additionally, the City of Ponca City requires that those contractors and their workers be registered locally. If you are unsure about the status of a contractor, you may contact Building Services staff. The CIB web-site also has a tool that allows you to check the status of a contractor’s State license. The State has also mandated that contractors are to register locally if they engage in the construction of one-and-two-family homes, or if they perform remodel work on that type of residential structure. Those contractors must provide proof of liability and worker’s compensation insurance (or exempt status) to City building officials as a condition for issuance of a local registration certificate. Types of projects that exempt residential contractors from being registered include: work that would not normally require issuance of a permit (See “When Do I Need a Permit”) ,construction of detached accessory structures (storage or shop buildings), backyard fence,  detached storm shelters, swimming pools, (above- or in-ground) and demolition. Development Services staff can tell you if a proposed project should be done by a registered contractor, and if a potential contractor has a residential certificate.

Currently, the City does not require a permit for roofing or re-roofing a structure.  You will also be able to file a complaint against a roofing contractor for performing sub-standard work, or for violating the terms of a contract.
