Codes & other resources

Recent code update: 2017 Florida Building Code, effective date
31 December 2017

For all customers permitting projects in the state of Florida, be advised that the new FBC will become effective on 31 December.

A comparison of the new and old code can be viewed here. The changes to chapter 15 are fairly minor.

  • Underlayment requirements are now grouped into a single table (1507.1.1).
  • Synthetic underlayments will require metal cap nails (aka tin tabs) in wind speed zones of 150MPH or greater (1507.1.1).
  • Manufacturers must operate under a quality assurance program that is audited by an approved third party entity (1507.4). We have been and will continue to be audited by Keystone Certifications, which is an approved auditing agency.
