Fort Lauderdale is a mid-sized city with a semi-tropical climate, and it’s framed by the Atlantic Ocean, New River, and a chain of scenic inland waterways that justify its reputation as “The Venice of America.” Aside from being a popular tourist destination, Fort Lauderdale is also known to be one of the most affordable coastal cities in Florida. Homes in this city have a median price of $312,000 and are usually constructed of a concrete block and stucco combination that can withstand the city’s hurricanes.
If you’re looking to build in Fort Lauderdale, our editorial team has put together this list of contractors capable of constructing or remodeling beautiful, sturdy homes. These contractors are also associated with industry organizations like the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). There are also a number of LEED-accredited firms on the list. All of them bring a strong work ethic to their projects, the kind of approach that earns them plenty of referrals from past clients.
If you are thinking about doing a construction project, we recommend checking each builder’s license with the local licensing board, speaking to past clients, and using our bidding system to get competitive quotes from at least 3 contractors. Getting multiple bids is the best way to ensure you get a fair price and that bids include the complete scope of work.
