House



1

The Committee on Environmental Preservation and Conservation

2

(Gaetz) recommended the following amendment:

3

4

     Senate Amendment (with title amendment)

5

     Between lines 431 and 432,

6

insert:

7

     Section 8.  Paragraph (b) of subsection (2) of section

8

553.844, Florida Statutes, is amended to read:

9

     553.844  Windstorm loss mitigation; requirements for roofs

10

and opening protection.--

11

     (2)  The Florida Building Commission shall:

12

     (b)  Develop and adopt within the Florida Building Code a

13

means to incorporate recognized mitigation techniques for site-

14

built, single-family residential structures constructed before

15

prior to the implementation of the Florida Building Code,

16

including, but not limited to:

17

     1.  Prescriptive techniques for the installation of gable-

18

end bracing;

19

     2.  Secondary water barriers for roofs and standards

20

relating to secondary water barriers. The criteria may include,

21

but need not be limited to, roof shape, slope, and composition of

22

all elements of the roof system. The criteria may not be limited

23

to one method or material for a secondary water barrier;

24

     3.  Prescriptive techniques for improvement of roof-to-wall

25

connections. The Legislature recognizes that the cost of

26

retrofitting existing buildings to meet the code requirements for

27

new construction in this regard may exceed the practical benefit

28

to be attained. The Legislature intends for the commission to

29

provide for the integration of alternate, lower-cost means that

30

may be employed to retrofit existing buildings that are not

31

otherwise required to comply with the requirements of the Florida

32

Building Code for new construction so that the cost of such

33

improvements does not exceed approximately 15 percent of the cost

34

of reroofing. For houses that have both hip and gable roof ends,

35

the priority shall be to retrofit the gable end roof-to-wall

36

connections unless the width of the hip is more than 1.5 times

37

greater than the width of the gable end. Priority shall be given

38

to connecting the corners of roofs to walls below the locations

39

at which the spans of the roofing members are greatest;

40

     4.  Strengthening or correcting roof-decking attachments and

41

fasteners during reroofing; and

42

     5.  Adding or strengthening opening protections.

45

And the title is amended as follows:

46

     On line 31, after the semicolon,

47

insert:

48

amending s. 553.844, F.S.; revising provisions requiring

49

the adoption of certain mitigation techniques by the

50

Florida Building Commission within the Florida Building

51

Code for certain structures;
