Who Is Considered A “Contractor” In Washington?

If you’re looking for a contractor in Washington, it won’t be difficult to find one. Washington defines a contractor broadly — any individual or entity that, for a business purpose, undertakes or offers to undertake any project that affects real property.

This definition includes the construction, alteration, repair, improvement, development, movement, wrecking, or demolition of buildings, highways, roads, railroads, or the excavation of anything attached to real property.

The statute also specifically includes consultants hired to assist with such projects.
