Does hurricane shutter installation require a building permit in Florida?
Wednesday, June 16, 2021
Yes, a building permit is required for hurricane shutter installation in Florida. If you don’t have a permit and/or documentation from a licensed contractor of the Florida or Miami-Dade product approvals for your shutters, you may not be able to get the homeowner’s insurance discount allowed on the Florida wind mitigation form for impact-resistant protection on your home's envelope. To learn more about the wind mitigation inspection, see article links at WIND MITIGATION FORM.
