Welcome! Online....On Time!

FIRST TIME USERS of the Online Renewal Services:

All first time users will need to create a login account using their current license number that the LAST 4 digits of their social security number or the social security number of the corporation's designated qualifying representative (DQR). Once the login account is created, the licensee will have the ability to login to the Online Services Dashboard to complete a renewal application.


Beginning with licenses issued for the 2024 licensure year, wallet cards and license certificates will no longer be printed and mailed by the Board. Once a renewal application is processed and approved, you will be sent a notification email containing a link back to the login page where you will login to the Dashboard once again to access a printable wallet card and license certificate. This access to a printable wallet card and license certificate will only be available for ONE PRINTING.

To proceed with completion of an online renewal application or to submit a request for a credit report, please make a selection of required online service below:

In August and September, the Board emailed a series of notifications designed to inform all licensees about online renewals. 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.
