Summary at a Glance
This is only a list of companies that violated Louisiana state licensing laws. It does not mean they do not know how to build, remodel, repair or construct. It only means they operated without a state license or WP and GL insurance or fraud issue.

Updated Jan 1 2018 (format edited 5-16-2018)

Please note that his list is a "Best Effort" list using the State of Louisiana Licensing Board of Contractors online search and database.

As a heavy database user I can say the states licensing board has a very poorly designed and poorly managed search and data listing of contractors that had been called in for hearings.

It is too difficult to actually manage to collect data from the sate without reading each of their minute notes and even then they are not complete enough to create a perfect contractors violation check list.

I will update the list as time permits, you can use a text search on this page for any construction company you are dealing with.

Drawbacks to using this search and the states data is that the state only issues licenses for 1 and 2 year periods. If a contractor is on the list that doesn't mean they haven't started a new company under a different name.
To track fraud by person is a whole different issue and would actually be the best consumer method of tracking people instead of companies that you wouldn't want to work with.

If the state is willing to provide data I will be willing to enter the data into an online app that allows you to search quickly for the person and companies that person has held in the past.

Resources and Information about them.

Louisiana Secretary of State
Use their search, if you find the company or persons name inactive search for their name using some of the information find on the inactive names. Many change names often, you can also find many that have several names depending on what they are doing. This is related to building, many Foundation and Framing Unlicensed Contractors will have a LLC Properties name that purchase the properties, work with the LLC Framing and Foundation name and use a state licensed contractor in good standings as their main contractor for permitting. Believe me, I have reported many of these types of fraudsters and it's not correct that the state of Louisiana doesn't investigate the sub-contractors on construction sites. But they refuse to do anything pasted asking the Permitted contractor who is working as their sub-contractors and if they are licensed to do the work they are hired to do. New homes offered by 2 known realtors in the Baton Rouge area knowingly hire unlicensed companies to do concrete foundation and framing work for them. I'll publish a few of them soon enough as one of the unlicensed concrete workers has rejoined the Realtor selling homes build with unskilled and unlicensed people. And you are willing to pay $130/sf for this quality.

Speaking of quality....

Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors

Do not confuse the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors with a Quality Control group. Far from it, think of them as your Barbers Tax and Licensing Board where they can care less if you know how to cut hair, as long as you pay the hair cutting tax you are a barber.
They enforce contract fraud but that takes much effort on the victim. They are best at passing out Worker Compensation Insurance and General Liability Insurance fines. It's very easy and you'll find only those that forget when they file for a permit a copy of that permit is sent to the state licensing board for review. They check for insurance and if not found they will visit the job site after visiting the contractor.

Sadly, the contractor that is not licensed and tells you that you don't need a permit or they say they will get all permits and don't are the real trouble. You see, a permit alerts your city inspectors to what work is going to be completed. Your city inspectors will then inspect the work to be sure it's up to city codes and building codes. This is your ONLY quality control process offered in the whole industry. If you skip the permit to avoid the licensing board you best know building codes and standards and inspect the work as it goes because you are the liable person not the person doing the work at this point. I have more on the issue of hiring unskilled and unlicensed workers making you the main contractor and liable for all mistakes.
