Monroe County requires all contractors to hold a Certificate of Competency (contractor's license) in their trade, as well as liability and worker's compensation insurance. There is no handyman license in Monroe County.
Here are some of the reasons why you should always hire a licensed contractor:
Don't confuse Business Tax or an Occupational License for a Certificate of Competency. Licensed contractors will be able to provide you with proof, and will be happy to do so.
