Louisiana is a state with a sub-tropical climate. The capital is Baton Rouge; the largest city was New Orleans but that has no longer been the case since the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The state has quite a few nicknames, including the Bayou State and the Sportsman's Paradise. Average winter temperatures range in the 40s and 50s, with temperatures higher in the southern parts of the state. Average summer temperatures are into the 80s and the climate is quite humid.

Consumer Resources

If you wish to make a complaint about your contractor, you can contact Louisiana's Attorney General. You can also complain to the Licensing board. The Better Business Bureau also accepts consumer complaints, so it's usually a good idea to check with them as you narrow down the list of contractors you're planning to use. There are BBBs available in the following cities: Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Shreveport, and Lake Charles.

Louisiana has organizations that will help people who are having trouble paying their energy bills. For more information, see the HUD website.

Contractor Licensing

Contractors working in Louisiana need to be licensed by the State Licensing Board for Contractors. Mechanical contractors in the state need a license if they are going to be working on jobs valued at $50,000 or more. Residential contractors also need licenses. To obtain a license, individuals must submit references from another licensed contractor, submit audited financial statements showing a net worth of $10,000, and pass an exam on basic construction. They must also have insurance. The license fee is $100, and there is an additional classification fee of $95. If you are a nonresident, there will be a $400 surcharge.
