- How to Check a Contractor's License
- •For a county-licensed contractor, call 954-765-4400, Option 2.
- •For a state-licensed contractor, call the Florida Department of
Business and Professional Regulation, 850-487-1395.
- •Ask if the contractor is licensed to perform the type of work
you need, and if the license has been revoked or suspended.
- •Ask if any complaints have been filed against the contractor.
- If the contractor’s license is current and active, you should:
- 1.Ask the contractor for references
- 2.Check out work done by the contractor for other customers
- 3.Ask how long your contractor has been in business (go to
www.sunbiz.org to verify)
- 4.Check with local suppliers about the contractor's reputation
- 5.Check with our agency or with the municipality in which the
work will be done for the contractor’s ability to pull permits.
- How to Select a Contractor
- •Obtain detailed written estimates from contractors that include
the work you want done, the quality and type of materials, how
long the job will take to finish and the total cost.
- •Be suspicious of a contractor who offers the fastest, cheapest
job on a "you must act
- now" basis. This may be an indication of inferior materials and
unfinished jobs, or a job that will take too long complete. Get
the proposal, contract or agreement in writing.
- •Obtain a current copy of the contractor's insurances, including
workers’ compensation, property damage and liability. Read
them carefully, including the fine print.
