Florida Building Code Update

Every 3 years the state of Florida adopts an updated version of the International Building Code. As of December 31, 2020, the 2020, 7th Edition of the Florida Building Code will be adopted and enforced by the City of Longwood. You can visit www.floridabuilding.org to view the updated code manuals. I encourage all residents, and contractors a like to review the new codes as there has been numerous changes, and specifically changes to the requirements for roof installations. Many of these changes are due to observed failures during the last few years of hurricanes.
