What is the difference between a State Certified General Contractor and State Certified Building Contractor and a Registered Contractor?
A State Certified General Contractor, such as ROSCO, is a contractor who is licensed by the state and who’s services are unlimited as to the type of work which he or she may do. A State Certified General may build any type, size or height structure and has no limitations or restrictions with regard to classifications. It is the “highest” state certification one can attain via state licensing or certification.
A State Certified General Contractor must:
- Pass the state licensing exam(s) for the license area
- Submit a certified application
- Meet financial stability/responsibility requirements
- Be of good moral character
Meet one of the following three experience/education requirements:
- Possess a four-
year college degree in engineering, architecture or building construction, AND have at least one year of proven experience in the contracting category in which the applicant seeks to qualify.
- Have at least four years of active experience as a worker who has learned the trade by serving an apprenticeship and who is able to command the rate of a mechanic in his particular trade, or at least one year of active experience as a foreman.
- Have a combination of college credits and experience as a skilled worker or foreman totaling four years of education and skilled work experience (see explanation of education requirements below).
- Additionally, a Certified General Contractor had, at the time of application, at least one year of his experience in the construction of structures not less than four stories in height.
- A State Certified Building Contractor is certified by the state however, his or her services are limited to the construction of commercial buildings and single-
dwelling or multiple- dwelling residential buildings. These buildings cannot exceed three stories in height. A building contractor may also build garages, guest houses, garden sheds, or other outbuildings. A building contractor may also be a contractor whose services are limited to only remodeling, repair, or improvement of any size building - if the services do not affect the structural elements of the building.
- A registered contractor means any contractor who has registered with the state pursuant to fulfilling the competency requirements in the jurisdiction for which the registration is issued. Registered contractors may contract only in such jurisdictions. In order to obtain a Certificate of Competency, in most municipalities or jurisdictions, all that is required is typically a submittal of work experience via affidavits, credit references, a credit report and corporate documents.
What happens to the contents of my house or office when I remodel?
Concerned about your furniture and personal contents? Not sure what to do about all the potential dust and mess that is typically associated with doing a project in or on your home, office or retail space? You are not alone. Over the years, ROSCO Construction has developed a strong reputation for a perfected procedure that ensures our customers’ property is masked, protected and completely safe throughout the course of the project. We will not hesitate to go above and beyond when it comes to erecting dust barriers, masking floor surfaces and protecting furniture so that all areas and items are properly and thoroughly protected prior to starting any actual work.

Do I need a permit for my project?
A building permit is required if you plan to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish or change the occupancy of a building or structure. A building permit is also required if you plan to install, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system, provided the installation is regulated by the Florida Building Code. You will not need a permit for painting, hanging wallpaper, installing tile/carpeting, replacing kitchen or bathroom cabinets or fixtures or repairing a very small and minor roof leak less than $500. If you are unsure if you need a permit, please contact us……..
