Florida Licensing

By February 22, 2020August 17th, 2021Uncategorized

In Florida, we have lots of contractor licenses which can be complicated. Most people do not fully understand what a general contractor’s license is or what it means. We have Division 1 and Division 2 contractors. Division 1 consists of General Contractors which are unlimited in scope, where Building Contractors are limited to three stories and Residential Contractors which are limited to two habitual residential stories. They also come as State Certified or County Registered contractors, State contractors can work anywhere in the state where County Registered are usually limited to the county they are Registered in.

Division 2 licenses are plumbers, electricians, air conditioning (mechanical) and roofers.

When contractors advertise or provide an estimate they must provide their license number. When most unlicensed contractors advertise they will simply state they are licensed and insured. Those licenses should be check and insurance should be verified. Unlicensed contractors can cause huge financial problems for homeowners. If you are in the Space Coast Area we can inspect the work or even just help you verify a contractor. Like many things, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Verify all licenses through the county or
