Construction contractors should always carry a license issued by the State of Louisiana's Licensing Board for Contractors. The State provides a searchable database at www.lslbc.louisiana.gov. From that location, you can find out if your contractor is licensed and make sure they hold the correct license for the work being performed.
The City of New Orleans separately licenses electrical contractors and mechanical contractors (gas, air conditioning, water heaters, etc.). From the City's onestopapp.nola.gov, you can search for your contractor to make sure they are licensed to operate in New Orleans.
