A licensee whose fully completed renewal application has been properly and timely filed and who has not received a notice of denial of renewal is considered to have been approved for renewal and may continue to transact business whether or not the renewed license has been received. Applications are timely if received by March 1 of the renewal year. Applications must be made on a form approved by the commissioner. An application for renewal that does not contain all of the information requested is an incomplete application and will not be processed.
(a) A residential contractor, residential remodeler, and residential roofer license shall have a renewal period of two years. The commissioner shall in a manner determined by the commissioner, without the need for any rulemaking under chapter 14, phase in the renewal of residential contractor, residential remodeler, and residential roofer licenses from one year to two years. By June 30, 2011, all renewed residential contractor, residential remodeler, and residential roofer licenses shall be two-year licenses.
(b) A manufactured home installer's license shall have a renewal period of three years, effective for all renewals and new licenses issued after December 31, 2008.

All licenses expire at 11:59:59 p.m. central time on March 31 of the renewal year if not properly renewed.
