Duh, I would take exception to some of your post. First of all I am not a Jerk. Second, your take on rules and of the build dept are wrong. Being in construction fo 31 years I have seen many times when the inspector of the job actually knows less than the person performing the job. The "person" performing may or may not be a contractor but in most cases a "homeowner" with good skills can out perform a "contractor" these days because of the vast knowledge provide through the internet and the homeowner will spend more hours perfecting the job then a contractor can afford to.
Also, homeowners or "Mr,fix-it" as you refer has and will be more informed and have more tech. knowledge due to the internet. "Mr. Fix-it" will be standing at the same supply house as you and will be buying the same item as you. This angers you and many other "contractors". You admit "you and your employees wear uniforms" that tells me you are a company of fair size. You have been on the island for a long time. Before Marco was a city inpections were handled by the Collier County. Now that Marco is a City, island based business has the up with the local inspectors that means you.
I am not saying that you are not a fair or honest person I stated what I have observed as "Marco Contractors" I will say you are dead wrong to insult anyone who works on their own property and insult their work as "dangerous or life threating". Please give me an example of who died due to a homeowner working on their own home?
By the way, to obtain a Florida "contractors" licence other that HVAC or Electrical one just has to pass the written test and no time in trade is needed.
So, maybee your foot needs to retract from your mouth.
What license do you hold?????
