Old Thomas; My other home in FL is where everyone is licensed and the[COLOR=Red said:licensing requirements are rather stringent.
I agree Old Thomas. I helped build a high school in Monroe Co. FL. in 2001-2002.( the Keys) The hoops I had to jump through were extremely time consuming. It didn't matter that my Tenn license was 3.5 million, and the bid was 1.8m. Reciprocation is a word Fl. didn't have in they're vocabulary. I still had to test, and spend about 12k in travel costs to license. Every Trade in FL is licensed, and if someone gets caught working without one, the fines are prohibitive. Don't know the procedure for going back work after being caught and fined. Might be banning as well. I do know Fl codes made a lot of builders retro-fit bracing after Andrew. Good thing when I move to Fl next fall I'll be retired. :biggrin2::biggrin2:
