If you’re having renovations or repairs done to your home, you may need a contractor. Don’t hire just any contractor though, as construction fraud run rampant. Always verify the contractor’s license to make sure they are in good standing with a Certificate of Competency and a license. In order to check a contractor’s license in Hillsborough County, just head on over to the county’s website. It features a license search for all contractors.
What If A Contractor’s License Doesn’t Show Up In The Search?
If the database doesn’t show you the information for the contractor you’re looking up, please call the Hillsborough County Contractor Licensing Center at (813) 307-4561 or (813) 635-7312. Do not give money to a contractor missing from the database before calling the Contractor Licensing Center! All contractors performing construction-related work in Hillsborough County must be licensed. They must carry a Certificate of Competency. If they don’t have these, they are either working around the system or one of the number of con artists that may take your money and run. Keep in mind, if you hire a contractor who genuinely performs the work, if something goes wrong down the line, you will have no recourse. If a scammer ripped you off, please file a report of construction fraud using the county’s reporting system.
