Cape Coral Reminds Residents to be Wary of Unlicensed Contractors

The City of Cape Coral reminds residents to confirm contractors are operating with the correct licenses before hiring them.

In Florida, it is a criminal offense to engage in contracting work or act in a contractor’s capacity without a valid contractor’s license. Working with an unlicensed contractor is a dangerous practice that can leave you with faulty work that may not be constructed correctly.

Warning signs that a contractor is not licensed:

  • They ask you to make a check payable to an individual.
  • They cannot provide proof of insurance.
  • They are not willing to put a contract in writing.
  • They request a large down payment before work begins.

To report an unlicensed contractor performing work within the City of Cape Coral, call 239-242-3783 or email Cape Coral Code Compliance at unlicensed@capecoral.gov.
