The second largest insurance company in Florida, Citizens Insurance, requires a roof inspection for shingle roofs older than 25 years, and at 50 years for tile, slate, clay, concrete, and metal roofs. The inspector must verify at least three years of remaining useful life. Here’s how it is stated at their website.
Other Florida insurance companies may have different standards and, or course, they are always subject to change.
