5.0 Isis O. Boca Raton, FL

Sherwood works wonders and miracles. I would hire him in a heartbeat. He worked with our local city of boca raton, fl which is infamous for being super difficult but he stuck with us from beginning to end.

5.0 Mark S. Boca Raton, FL

I hired this company to guide me through the building permitting process and, although I have not yet successfully obtained my permit, their conscientious pursuit of what has proved to be a difficult and exasperating experience would likely earn my recommendation even if they were to ultimately fail.

5.0 Rick W. Mulberry, FL

I had a project I needed permits for. A concrete slab and electrical were completed before I obtained any permits during the pandemic. Permits by Sherwood helped (a lot) with this process. Excellent customer service! Very knowledgeable on all that had to be done. Sherwood and Shantel were extremely helpful with the permits and the HOA climbing up my back about the project. Thank you for everything.

5.0 Kathleen W. Ocala, FL

Permits by Sherwood: I highly recommend their service, Sherwood, and his assistant (Shantel) put my fears to ease and saved me the cost of replacing my roof when it was not necessary... I thought, as a homeowner, that pulling my permits for new construction (even just changing the roof) would be easy and manageable, only to be notified by my insurance, who are becoming ever more difficult, just trying to cut costs. When a huge tree branch fell on my HVAC, their adjuster mistakenly noted my HVAC as a 2 ton when it was a 5 ton. Then, they were questioning the quality of the roof materials, they had my 30-year architectural shingles and they were listed as 10-year basic shingles, they were still in great shape, plus the waste and the expense and this meant they were suggesting I also replace the shingles 20 years early. Plus, I expect they were also charging me more for the insurance premiums. So, I tried to read and understand the building permits, and yet, the technical jargon and their quantity, it was very hard. I found the receipt and confirmed with the vendor, they were the 30-year architectural shingles. I was so confused, and I knew I needed some help. Especially, because the building department can also make you tear down and redo anything not documented and permitted correctly. Then, I came across this company, this was the first time I had ever heard of this type of service I contacted them to ask what they do. He and Shantel were candid, informative, and explained the possible outcomes; and then researched my building permits. Sherwood went the extra mile to review the information with the building department, validate my building permits, and explain any changes in the building codes and I was in good shape. I highly recommend Sherwood and Shantel, from Permits by Sherwood. I was so thankful for a positive outcome - Kathleen W.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
