The City of Key West wants to warn residents to beware of unlicensed contractors. As often is the case following a disaster, people come in offering to do repairs and mold remediation, but they are not licensed, contractors. Some may even be using license numbers that belong to another contractor.
We strongly urge everyone, before you let someone work on your property, to call to verify that the individual doing the work is legally licensed. It will protect you from shoddy or uncompleted work. Contractors face a 3rd-degree felony for working without a license.
You can easily check on a license by calling the Key West Building Department at 305-809-3956.
