Hello Keith,
Yes is it still possible, but you will need to be able to provide proof of experience for the Roofing Contractor License.

Hello Allie,
In order to do painting in Polk County, you do not need to obtain a county license. If you would like to do that type of job in other counties we recommend that you obtain the Residential State License.

For Polk county, you would not need a license to do exterior painting. For the specific amount that you can work without a license, we recommend that you contact your local building department.
