Why only select a licensed contractor to install or repair your pool?

1 A licensed person has the required education, experience, insurance and qualifications to obtain a license. They must pass a competency examination before practicing.

2 Licensed individuals are screened for prior criminal history.

3 The department can discipline and even revoke a license if the person does not live up to professional standards. This is a not a total safeguard, but is a strong incentive for the licensee to do good work.

4 You may be able to sue the licensee in civil court for problems related to the work done.

5 Non-licensed contractors may not be insured, leaving you liable for any injuries or damages.

6 There may be little recourse if you have issues with non-licensed contractors since the state isn’t governing their actions.

Non-licensed contractors performing work which requires a license can be reported to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. Call the DBPR’s toll-free hotline 866-532-1440 or e-mail ULA@dbpr.state.fl.us (report is forwarded to local office / investigator). A list of regulation offices can be found at here.
