A flooring & floor covering contractors license will allow you to prepare any surface for the installation of flooring and floor coverings and install carpet, resilient sheet goods, resilient tile, wood floors and flooring (including the finishing and repairing thereof), and any other materials established as flooring and floor covering material.
The flooring classification does not include ceramic tile installation.
Before you can apply for your flooring & floor covering contractors license, you must meet the following experience requirements:
- 4 years of experience performing/supervising flooring & floor covering (C-15) work.
- Social Security number or ITIN
- Be at least 18 years old*
Don’t have 4 years of flooring & floor covering experience?
A college degree can be substituted for up to three years of that experience.

*Even though you can apply for a flooring & floor covering contractors license when you are 18 years old, it is recommended that you be at least 23 years old due to the experience requirement.
