The state of Florida has been hit by more hurricanes than any other state in America. Because of this fact, the Florida Building Code has strict requirements with regard to roof installations. Florida roofing contractors are held to a higher standard than other state contractors when it comes to wind uplift requirements. It is imperative that building owners insist on a Florida licensed roofing contractor and that the contractor adheres to all Florida Building Code requirements. McCurdy-Walden stays current on all of the latest code changes and wind uplift requirements, making sure that building owners get the best roof system possible.
