In order to obtain your Florida General Contractors license, you must complete several requirements with the state. You must also complete 14 hours of continued education each year in order to maintain an active General Contractors license in the state of Florida.

We understand that between taking the exam and gathering the paperwork for your contractor’s license application, sometimes things can fall through the cracks – things like your insurance requirements or your documented experience. That is why we have focused our Licensing Package entirely on you and making your licensing process and renewal as convenient as possible.
