The Florida 25% Rule for Roofing


Do you know about the Florida 25% Rule?

Your insurance company sure does not want you to know about it. The 25% rule can have a major impact on how much you can claim from your insurance company after an event, such as a hurricane or even a hail storm.

As a homeowner, it is important to understand the "Florida 25% Rule" as it pertains to roofing. To be more specific:

2017 Florida Building Code - Existing Building, Sixth Edition



"Not more than 25% of the total roof area or 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 requirements of this code."

This means, quite simply, that if 25% or more of your roof is damaged by a storm, you may be entitled to an insurance claim settlement for a new roof. Since there are so many homes in Florida that have been damaged by hurricanes, high winds, and tropical storms in the past 3 years, it is important that you get a FREE roof inspection today by a trained expert. This is the first step in getting a new roof paid for by your Insurance Company. If you think you may have roof damage, call us first - we may be able to help.

This Florida 25% Rule applies to shingle roofs, tile roofs, flat TPO roofs, mod bit roofs, and metal roofs. If you think your roof may have been damaged by any storm - whether or not it is hail damage, wind damage, or hurricane damage - call us today and get a FREE drone picture of your home with every roof inspection.
