Hurricane Season Is Nothing To Joke About
Living in Florida, you already know that Summers here are known for one thing. We are talking about hurricanes. Because of these powerful storms, it is imperative you install these special windows to protect your home and family.
But, what is the process for installing new windows, and do you need a building permit for impact windows? The simple answer is yes.
In most cases, building permits are required for the installation of impact windows in Florida. This is especially true in South Florida – particularly Broward and Miami-Dade counties – which are classified High-Velocity Hurricane Zones (HVHZ). As section 104.1.1 of the Florida Building Code states:
“Any owner, authorized agent, or contractor who desires to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish, or change the occupancy or occupant content of a building or structure, or any outside area being used as part of the building’s designated occupancy (single or mixed) or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert, or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system, the installation of which is regulated by the technical codes, or to cause any such work to be done, shall first make application to the building official and obtain the required permit for the work.”
Here is a quick overview of what to expect during the application process:
- Fill out the application – You must be sure to have all relevant information about the project: permit type (commercial, residential, etc.), the total value of work to be done, square footage of the property, description of the work to be carried out and who will be in
- Once the application is approved, pick up your permit – Permits are valid provided an approved inspection is obtained no more than 180 days after its issuance, and an approved inspection is obtained every 180 until the project’s completion.
- stalling the windows.
- Return the forms to your city’s Building Department – Residential permits can take up to 30 days for approval, while commercial applications can take up to 50 days.
