Hiring a Contractor?

Below are some helpful hints to follow when hiring a contractor:

  1. Get at least three estimates from different contractors for the same job.  Donít be victimized by someone making a door-to-door presentation offering to do repair jobs or home improvements "on-the-spot" and requiring a cash deposit.
  2. Make sure that the contractor you choose is licensed by the State of Florida or your county government. To verify if a contractor is licensed, visit and click on the link, "Search for a License, Permit, or Registration". You can also call 850-487-1395.
  3. Ask your contractor for references, and follow up with those references.  Make personal contacts and ask about the quality of work.
  4. Read your contract very carefully, including warranty information on any products used to strengthen your home.  Require a written contract with the contractorís license number on it. Donít sign if there are any blank areas and until you fully understand the terms.
  5. Donít pay cash, donít let payments get ahead of the work completed, and donít pay the full cost of the job up-front. Make sure that building material costs are paid; ask for receipts.
  6. Make sure that the products used meet code requirements and all appropriate building permits have been pulled with the Town.
  7. Check workersí compensation coverage by requesting to see a certificate of insurance. If injuries occur on your property, you may be liable.
