Disciplines include structural, electrical, plumbing and mechanical (A/C).

Things to Remember

Here are a few things to remember when having construction work done in or around your home or business. Hire licensed, insured and reputable contractors. Get a minimum of 3 quotes before signing a contract. Request references, licenses and insurance information for each contractor. Verify licenses with the Florida DBPR. Verify and track your permit via E-Services, Permit Status & Records.

As a part of Emergency Management and Safety, we offer community education for mitigation audits to homes, businesses and local government buildings 40 years and older.
