Hello Marcelo,
For paving, you will not be required to have a license, but to do the work some businesses may require you to have a license, which in that case you will need a State license like the Florida Residential License.

After July 2023 you will need to obtain a Florida Residential or General Contractor license to be able to do Garage door work in those counties.

Hello Laura,
Broward County is still regulating and enforcing its county licenses. Once the HB735 goes into effect in July 2023, they will require a state-level License. For Tree Trimming at a state level, you can obtain a General Contractor License to clear land to build, but you will still have to pull a permit for tree Trimming. We recommend contacting the State for a more direct answer on how to proceed with the work you will be doing.

So we do commercial tile work and our contracts require us to be licensed. With Tile specialty licensing going away what license would be applicable for us moving forward?

I have a Broward County Aluminum Specialty License. Will the state honor it by giving me the state equivalent license? Or will I have to go back to school and take exams all over again?
