Hire Licencensed Contractors for Irma Repairs

The Secretary of the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) wants to get the word out that you should only hire licensed contractors to undertake any repairs or upgrades to your property and structures that may be needed as a result of Hurricane Irma.

Some red flags that could indicate activity from an unlicensed contractor include:

  • Demanding full payment up front
  • Lack of a written contract
  • Soliciting door-to-door
  • Advertising without a Florida license number
  • Requesting cash only
  • Using high pressure sales tactics
