When were gas water heaters first required to be FVIR (Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant)?

Monday, January 11, 2021

The requirement for re-nailing roof sheathing for a roof replacement became effective on October 1, 2007. When you replace a roof on a home that was built before the implementation of the statewide Florida Building Code on March 1, 2002, the nailing of the roof sheathing (decking) must be brought up to current standards for hurricane resistance as part of the installation of the new roof. Full requirements are covered in the Existing Building edition of The Florida Building Code, Section 706. For more details, see our blog post What are the roof sheathing requirements for a roof replacement in Florida?
