Window/Door & Renovation Permits - Energy Code Compliance
Pursuant to the recent Declaratory Statement (DS2018-072) provided by the Florida Building Commission window/door permits and renovation permits that are less than 30% of the building’s value will be exempt from complying with the Florida Energy Code per section C101.4.2 & R101.4.2. This includes exemptions to the solar heat gain coefficient and u-value requirements.
If the value of the window/door replacement or renovation is greater than 30% of the building’s value, the project will need to comply with the Florida Energy Code.
