Building or Residential Contractor License limits you in some specific kinds of building, but General Contractor (GC) does not. Obtaining the GC License will give you the permission to construct, repair, alter, remodel, or improve any structure or building type. If you are a licensed Building or Residential contractor with 4 year-experience, you are eligible to upgrade your license to a General Contractor.
