Quick question for Washington DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland folks.

I have a family member doing some work on a condo in DC, and they have gotten some bids but some of the contractors have a home improvement license and some have a general contractors license.

Typical of DC the layers to find something is extremely difficult (and this coming from someone who works for a contractor who knows what to be looking for).

We are looking for a contractor to

Rehab property in Prince George's County. Do you have any recommendations?
