Are Your Repairs Going Against Code? About Florida Building Code 706.1.1
Most building owners are unaware of a small piece of Florida’s Building Code that can be a big factor when it comes to handling major repairs on buildings across Florida. This rule can affect how much your insurance company is willing to reimburse you for roof damages after a storm or another such covered event, or if you need to make additional permitting/design/construction to keep your building code-compliant.
What is Florida Building Code 706.1.1?
According to Section 706.1.1 of the 2017 Florida Building Code, the Florida 25% Rule is defined as follows:
Not more than 25 percent of the total roof area of a roof section of any existing building or structure shall be repaired, replaced, or recovered in any 12-month period unless the entire existing roofing system or roof section is replaced to conform to the requirements of this code.
