While Nevada may appear to the outsider as the last of the Wild West -- a place where anything goes, a local business-owner will tell you otherwise. The state's low tax-rate and easy incorporation laws may make it attractive to entrepreneurs, but that's not because of any shortage of licensing. Nevada's state, county and city governments regulate a multitude of businesses and collect just as many fees. The benefits of the Wild West are available to those who apply.
In Nevada, (a) A lathing and plastering contractor coats surfaces with a mixture of sand, gypsum plaster, quick-lime or hydrated lime and water, or sand and cement and water, or a combination of such other materials that create a permanent coating, including coatings for the purpose of soundproofing and fireproofing. These coatings are applied with a plasterer’s trowel or sprayed over any surface which offers a mechanical means for the support of such coating, and will adhere by suction. This contractor also installs lath (including metal studs) or any other material prepared or manufactured to provide a base or bond for such coating. (b) A lathing and plastering contractor also applies and affixes wood and metal lath, or any other material prepared or manufactured to provide key or suction bases for the support of plaster coatings. This classification includes the channel work and metal studs for the support of metal or any other lathing material and for solid plaster partitions. (c) Effective January 1, 1998, or as soon thereafter as administratively feasible, all C-26 licensees will be merged into the C-35 Lathing and Plastering classification. On and after January 1, 1998, no applications for the C-26 classification will be accepted and no new C-26 Lathing licenses will be issued.
