Oregon law requires anyone who works for compensation in any construction activity involving improvements to real property to be licensed with the Oregon Construction Contractors Board. This includes roofing, siding, painting, carpentry, concrete, on-site appliance repair, heating and air conditioning, home inspections, tree service, plumbing, electrical, floor covering, manufactured dwelling installation, land development, and most other construction and repair services. To confirm that your contractor is licensed you may check at the Construction Contractors Board website.
A homeowner may perform plumbing on their own home with out a license, otherwise a licensed journeyman plumber must perform the plumbing work. A journeyman plumber has completed an approved apprenticeship training program or equivalent training/experience and has passed the State Plumbing Board plumbing license examination. Journeyman plumbers are required to carry and present (if requested) their plumbing license. You may search to verify at the Oregon Building Codes Division website.
