Please Note: Renewal Begins October 1st and Ends December 31st
The Home Builders Licensure Board (HBLB) offers online renewal. In August and September, the Board mails a series of direct mail pieces designed to inform all licensees about online renewals, as well as provide a method for licensees to request the traditional paper renewal packages. This series of mailers contains a card that can be returned to the HBLB as a request for paper renewal packages. These returnable cards are designed solely for those who do not have internet access. The HBLB encourages anyone that has the capacity to renew online to do so. Online license renewals are by far the easiest, most convenient, fastest and most accurate way for Alabama's homebuilders and remodelers to renew their licenses each year.
