Florida Keys Building Contractors

Protect Yourself and Your Home ! Hire a Licensed Contractor !

Did you know that Monroe County requires all contractors to hold a Certificate of Competency (a-k-a Contractor's License) in their trade, as well as Liability and Worker's Compensation Insurance?  Did you know there is NO "Handyman"license in Monroe County? Here are some of the reasons why you should always hire a licensed contractor:      If the work performed by the unlicensed contractor is unsafe, does not meet code, or is left unfinished, you may have no recourse-  If the unlicensed contractor or his employee(s) is/are injured on your property, you may be liable-  By hiring an unlicensed contractor you are subject to a citation in the amount of $150-00 for aiding and abetting unlicensed activity-  The unlicensed contractor is subject to a citation in the amount of $500-00 for not having a Certificate of Competency and/or proper insurance as required under Monroe County law-  Your project will be stopped, and if applicable, after-the-fact fines may be assessed for work done without benefit of a permit-  Don't confuse an "occupational license" for a Certificate of Competency-  If your contractor is licensed, they will be able to provide you with proof, and be happy to do so-
