Did you know working with solar technology was an option as a contractor? It is! With the world going more “green,” there will be more solar jobs popping up left and right.

According to the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation (DBPR), a solar contractor is defined as a contractor whose services “consist of the installation, alteration, repair, maintenance, relocation, or replacement of solar panels for potable solar water heating systems, swimming pool solar heating systems, and photovoltaic systems and any appurtenances, apparatus, or equipment used in connection with these systems.”

When you become a solar contractor, you can either become a certified solar contractor (CV) and a residential solar water or a heating specialty contractor (CW).

To work as a solar contractor in Florida, you need to have a Florida contractor’s license; however, if you are working under a licensed contractor you do not need to be licensed yet. If you do work on your own that requires installing, altering, repairing, maintaining, relocating or replacing any type of solar thermal or PV system, you need a certification and/or license to work legally. read more

The Importance of Regular Home Maintenance

The Importance of Regular Home Maintenance

Throughout the year, there are things you should be doing yourself in your home or hiring a contractor to do. These “things” are preventative measures and upkeeping tasks that if you do not ignore, you can possibly avoid bigger problems from occurring in your home.

We wanted to share with you some regular maintenance tasks you should be doing throughout the year or having a contractor do, so you won’t end up with something broken that needs to be majorly repaired or replaced.

  • Clean your gutters out. Dirt and leaves get stuck in them. When they are full, the gutters are pointless and cannot do their job, so the water can potentially leak into your foundation. Your gutter can also collapse from the excess weight in it. You should clean your gutters once a week if you can.
  • If you see any signs of termites in your home, call an exterminator immediately, because if you ignore it they can eat away at the structure of your home and cause your home to be compromised.
  • If you see dampness, rust, mold, or collection of water, call a plumber to fix this. Water damage can cause structural problems for your home and health problems. Dampness also attracts a lot of insects, including termites.
  • Make sure big trees in your property are not compromising your foundation by their roots.

 

If you do these few tasks throughout the year, you can end up savings thousands in the long run. Upkeep can be annoying and time consuming, but it is worth it to keep your home safe and livable.
