Changing windows and doors without a permit can get you a Building Code Violation Florida

It is one of the most common building code violations that we see every week with a response time of 3 days and typically cost $ 350 - $ 500 depending on the number of units and the size of the structure . The main reason which a permit is required is that the current Building Code Florida requires that windows and doors against the wind pressures applicable to each opening for specific wind speeds in ASCE Florida area map wind . Some coastal counties in Florida require housing to withstand winds of 100-150 kilometers per hour.
Every window , door or shutter is designed to withstand wind speeds and those who pass are issued a Notice of Acceptance ( NOA ) that specifies the range of positive and negative pressure it can withstand . Your architect or engineer calculate for each opening pressures depending on their size and location in the structure. Most building departments require the architect to review and sign the NOA before submitting .
The NOA is based not only on the whole unit , but also in its installation method so simply submitting documentation alone will not lift the building code violation . An inspection that the unit has been installed as per the NOA will be carried out . If the new window and door units are impact resistant then the same wind load calculations can be applied to the shutters .
