The hiring of a Contractor is an important decision to make!!
Please make sure of proper licensing, bonding, and insurance. If
they are not licensed and insured, and get injured on your
property. You the "homeowner" are responsible!!!
All builds in the State of Florida require permitting, and only
licensed contractors can pull a permit. If a "Contractor"
asks you the "homeowner" to do this, chances are they are not
licensed to do so. Please do your homework on any Contractor you
plan to hire.
Ask to see their credentials before any money changes hands.
All work over $2500.00 should have a homeowners "Notice of
filed with the Clerk of Circuit Court in your jurisdiction.
Failing to do so can cause you to pay for improvements twice.
