3. What is Required for Renewal?

Prior to expiration of the license, the permittee is required to renew the license which shall include an on-site inspection and "certification" letter by a Professional Engineer, licensed in the State of Florida.


The purpose of the on-site inspection is to confirm that the system is functioning and being maintained in accordance with the originally-permitted plans.



4. How Long Does Renewal Take?

We specialize in fast turnaround.  We typically can schedule the required on-site inspection within a few business days of our engagement.  Permit renewal certifications will be turned in within 48 hours of the on-site inspection.


Don't wait until it's too late and risk possible action!
