Home improvements and repairs can pose many difficult problems and potentially lead to complaints for consumers. We regulate all trades and occupations associated with the installation, repair, alteration, design or modification of electrical, plumbing, liquefied petroleum gas, mechanical systems, building construction industry and engineered construction as mandated in Chapter 489 of the Florida State Statutes and Chapter 9 of the Broward County Code of Ordinances. We issue Certificates of Competency to over 12,000 tradespeople who contract with individuals for construction projects throughout Broward County.
The purpose of contractor licensing regulations is to protect the life, health, safety, property and public welfare of Broward County residents. These regulations promote a marketplace where construction activities are performed by qualified and licensed contractors according to current laws and Florida Building Codes. The ordinance provides for a uniform central process for examination, certification and regulation of all individuals or business organizations who engage in these trades.
