Are Class A Contractors better?
All licensed contractors in Virginia subscribe to the same building code. So, logically, all work performed by a licensed contractor in Virginia should be the same.
The “Class” has little do with the level of quality but rather the level of taxation.
Class A contractors have equipment valued at more than $45,000 and can complete jobs valued at more than $125,000.
Class B contractors have equipment valued at more than $15,000 and can complete jobs valued at less than $125,000.
A Class C contractor has hand tools and can complete jobs valued at less than $7500.
The Class A & B test are the same, it’s a matter of how much tax do you want to pay on equipment and how big of a job you want to do. I haven’t yet installed an air conditioning system valued at more than $125,000 so I don’t see the need to pay taxes for equipment valued at more than $45,000.
64 West Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning is a Class B company.
