Always Hire a Licensed Contractor

In an effort to save time and money you may be tempted to hire an unlicensed contractor. Don’t make this mistake. Here’s why you should always hire a licensed Florida Contractor.

Lack of Qualifications

Unlicensed Contractors typically lack the experience, qualifications, education and proper insurance associated with a professionally licensed Florida Contractor. This can lead to serious delays and substandard work which can cause you to lose a significant amount of money in the process.


Because they are unlicensed contractors they are not obligated to adhere to the strict building codes as laid out by the DBPR. This can pose serious safety risks.

Homeowner Liability

Often overlooked is the financial risk homeowners make when hiring an unlicensed contractor. While a licensed Florida Contractor must maintain workers’ compensation insurance, an unlicensed contractor does not. This means that in the event of an injury you may be liable.

So give yourself some peace of mind and only hire a licensed Florida Contractor. It is the surest and safest way to successfully complete your next project.

If you are interested in obtaining a Florida Contractors licenses don’t hesitate to contact Contractor Licensing, Inc. We’ll get you approved for a Florida Contractors license quickly and efficiently.

Florida Contractor License Application Abyss


This Florida Contractor License Blog is devoted to a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) applicant.  Fear not, because I will never disclose any specific information about anyone in this blog, rather we can have this conversation based upon general topical information.

The DIY applicant explained to me he was attempting to save a few bucks by preparing and submitting his own Florida Contractor License application. The DIY applicant elaborated, that his ordeal spanned several months, and he described the delay as “regulatory abyss.”

Accordingly, the DIY applicant contends his DIY application was received and eventually reviewed, but he subsequently received a deficiency letter, and a month later a second deficiency letter. The DIY applicant became annoyed, then frustrated by that delay. He did not enjoy being placed on the back burner, as the progress towards approval ground to a halt.

On the one hand, I can appreciate the DIY applicant’s initial thought process, because saving money sounds smart, but on the other hand, a DIY applicant should weigh the potential business risk, because loss of revenue for two months due to submission of a Florida Contractor License application with document error, or otherwise inaccurate, incomplete, or insufficient information holds up approval.

The math teaches us that a DIY application submission can occur based upon the best intentions, but best intentions do not necessarily equate to a profitable ending, and a DIY application can slowly evolve into a costly mistake, month over month indeed.
