Hi all. I'm new to this forum, as well new to construction. I have 15 years of repairs and maintenance experience from picking up a tool bag to overseeing work on military bases. My father-in-law and I have a handy man/renovation company that we plan on moving up into general contracting. He has already taken the state exams and passed with flying colors. After the rest of the application process we should be certified building contractors for Florida. My question is how do general/builder contractors work the workmans comp issue especially in Florida? We already got one quote for three employees and this is just for trim and finish carpentry.
