Licensing and Insurance Requirements


Importance of Licensing
Qualified tradesmen may easily become licensed contractors by submitting the Flagler Contractor Application. Advertising to do building work without a contractor license in advance is as illegal as actually doing such work, and all illegal operators are prosecuted to the fullest extent prescribed in the adopted contractor licensing ordinance. Ordinance 2007-10 applies to the unincorporated areas of Flagler County.
