The repair exception recognized by O.C.G.A. § 43-41-17(g) and this Rule shall in no way impact or diminish the licensing requirements of Chapter 14 of Title 43 (Electrical Contracting, Plumbing, Conditioned Air Contracting, Low-Voltage Contracting and Utility Contracting).

Nothing in this Rule shall preclude a person or entity (including employees of said entity) from offering or contracting to perform or undertaking or performing for an owner repair work, provided that:

(1) the person performing the repair work discloses in writing to the owner that such person/entity is not licensed as a residential or general contractor under this chapter;
(2) the work does not entail the delegation or assignment to or engagement of any person or entity, other than employees, to supervise, manage or oversee the performance of any portion of the work undertaken;
(3) the work does not affect the life safety requirements or structural integrity of the real property. Such repairs shall not include the removal or addition of any load bearing wall or the removal or cutting of any structural beam or load bearing support; and
