About Jason Nix

Jason Nix LLC is a second generation, family business built on referred and returning clients. Thomas Nix, my dad, retired in 2008 and passed the baton to me. We have combined the experience of 41 years. In that time our customers have never experienced a major dock or seawall failure, despite all that the Florida weather has thrown this way. My long term plan is to retire in 10 to 15 years, at which point I will pass the business on to my children, who you will undoubtedly see on your project at some point. I love being in and on the water, and want to enable others to enjoy it as much as I do.

I offer a very long warranty due to my experience and expertise, specialized tools, and high-quality control over materials and craftsmanship. I pride myself on building the strongest structures for your waterfront enjoyment and teach my children that our business is built on the teachings of Colossians 3:17. I build every project as if I am working for my Creator, and you, the customer, are quite simply funding the projects and then getting to enjoy them.

The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation

A State Certified Contractor is qualified, tested, and held to a higher level of accountability than County Certified Contractors. If you would like further material on this topic check out my “‘Licensed and Insured’ Defined” article.

Verify a Contractors Workers Compensation Coverage

Here, you can determine whether or not your potential contractor is providing coverage for his cp employees. If the Governing class code is not “06006,” then the employees are not covered for your project and you will be liable, just as if the contractor is uninsured altogether. When signing a contract, have the contractor add you as an “additional insured,” and the insurance company will email you a current certificate of insurance. If this request is a problem for your contractor, then DO NOT hire this particular contractor/ company as YOU WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY OF HIS EMPLOYEES’ INJURIES OR DEATHS.

Better Business Bureau

You’ll also find the Better Business Bureau reviews are a useful tool. Here you can read the reviews of other customers who have used a particular contractor in the past.
