In Florida, roofing contractors are required to hold a roofing contractor license issued by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR).
Roofing regulations can often be confusing. Read through this brief overview to better understand this important aspect of your roofing project.
To obtain this license, a roofing contractor must meet certain requirements, including:
- Completing a roofing contractor application and submitting it to the DBPR along with the required fees.
- Having a qualifying individual with at least four years of roofing experience.
- Providing proof of workers’ compensation insurance coverage for all employees.
- Providing proof of liability insurance coverage with a minimum coverage of $100,000 per occurrence and $300,000 aggregate.
- Passing a roofing contractor exam that covers roofing materials, roofing systems, estimating, and contracting laws and regulations.
It’s important to note that these requirements are in addition to any local building codes or regulations that may apply to roofing work in Florida. It’s always a good idea to check with your local building department to ensure that you are complying with all applicable laws and regulations.
