West Virginia has established Reciprocity with Tennessee for the residential classification. You must hold a current active Residential Builders license and have obtained the license by state examination. A verification of licensure will be required along with your reciprocity application. Once your reciprocity application has been reviewed and approved by the Board, you will have to schedule and pass the West Virginia business and law exam prior to the license being issued.
The West Virginia Residential license allows for residential construction from the ground up, as well as remodeling existing residential properties.
