General Contractors Are NOT Required to have a Roofing License in the Aftermath of Hurricane Ian

With the passage of Emergency Order 2022-03, General, Building, or Residential contractors (certified or registered) are NOT required to have a roofing contractor’s license to repair or install any roof. Also, registered (county) contractors are not limited to their county; they can legally offer their services in other counties.

Feel free to ask any questions you have regarding your eligibility as a contractor to do roofing work in Florida.

Hello Richard,

If you are a licensed roofer in Alabama, then you would still be required to be licensed here in Florida to do work on the roof of a mobile home (or any home) in Florida.

There are also endorsement options, you must meet one of the three qualifications. I will attach the link below, if you do not qualify for the endorsement, we have the books and classes to prepare you to pass the trade and business exams for the Florida Roofing Contractor License.

Are you still required to tear off an existing damaged roof, dry in, and wait for the inspection before you finish installing asphalt shingles in Ft. Myers?
