Yes! If work exceeds $5,000, ONLY a licensed South Carolina Marine Contractor can legally build your project. The work must be performed by a contractor with a marine construction stipulation to their contractor’s license. Construction performed by anyone (other than the homeowner) without a South Carolina Marine Contractors License may cause you to be fined and require removal of your new dock. All licensed contractors should be able to present you with a copy of their South Carolina License. Gulfstream Marine is fully licensed and insured in the State of South Carolina and here to help you through the permitting process.
