Florida's Building Code
What does the Building Code have to do with Pool Enclosures, Patio Enclosures, Patio Covers and Screen Rooms in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and the Palm Beaches?
If you live in Florida, you undoubtedly have experience with our wild weather. In fact, Florida has some of the most violent weather anywhere in the world. Between the Humidity, Rain, and Hurricanes, anything built in Florida has to be built tough to stand up to the harsh environment.
Because of our often troublesome weather, the Florida Building Code has been continually updated and upgraded to respond to the threat of Hurricanes, In fact, Florida now has the most rigid building code in the country. Depending on where you live, any structure a contractor builds has to be able to withstand wind speeds of up to 150 MPH. Venetian Builders employs some of the most experienced and respected engineers in Florida to design our projects to not only meet but frequently exceed the building code requirements.
Every structure we build is designed to stand up to a major hurricane, does that mean they are guaranteed not to fall or be damaged? No, nobody can guarantee anything in a hurricane, what is does mean is that your project has been engineered and built to not only the highest building code, but the highest level of strength and quality available to Florida homeowners.
What does that mean to your screen pool or patio enclosure? Thicker walled metal beams, brace plates at all joints, K-Bracing and Wind Bracing made of 2X3 structural grade aluminum instead of the 2X2 required by the building code. Venetian Builders uses all stainless steel hardware to anchor your new screen pool or patio enclosure to the deck, we use larger than required screws to keep the joints throughout the structure strong in the face of high winds. Don’t trust your pool enclosure, pool screen, patio screen, patio cover, or sunroom to just anyone, call the experts...
