Section E (Tile Calculations)
For Moment based tile systems, choose either Method 1 or 2. Compare the values for M
r
with the values from M
f
. If the M
f
values are greater than or
equal to the M
r
values, for each area of the roof, then the tile attachment method is acceptable.

*Must be used in conjunction with a list of moment based tile systems endorsed by the Broward County Board of Rules and Appeals.
For Uplift based tile systems use Method 3. Compared the values for F’with the values for Fr. If the F’values are greater than or equal to the Fr values,
for each area of the roof, then the tile attachment method is acceptable.

SECTION 1524 - HIGH VELOCITY HURRICANE ZONES
R
EQUIRED OWNERS NOTIFICATION FOR ROOFING CONSIDERATIONS
1524.1 Scope. As it pertains to this section, it is the responsibility of the roofing contractor to provide the owner with
the required roofing permit, and to explain to the owner the content of this section. The provisions of Chapter 15 of
the Florida Building Code, Building govern the minimum requirements and standards of the industry for roofing
system installations. Additionally, the following items should be addressed as part of the agreement between the
owner and the contractor. The owner's initial in the designated space indicates that the item has been explained.
______ 1. Aesthetics-Workmanship: The workmanship provisions of Chapter 15 (High Velocity Hurricane Zone)
are for the purpose of providing that the roofing system meets the wind resistance and water intrusion performance
standards. Aesthetics (appearance) are not a consideration with respect to workmanship provisions. Aesthetic
issues such as color or architectural appearance, that are not part of a zoning code, should be addressed as part of
the agreement between the owner and the contractor.
______ 2. Renailing Wood Decks: When replacing roofing, the existing wood roof deck may have to be renailed
in accordance with the current provisions of Chapter 16 (High Velocity Hurricane Zones) of the Florida Building
Code, Building. (The roof deck is usually concealed prior to removing the existing roof system).
______ 3. Common Roofs: Common roofs are those which have no visible delineation between neighboring units
(i.e., townhouses, condominiums, etc.). In buildings with common roofs, the roofing contractor and/or owner should
notify the occupants of adjacent units of roofing work to be performed.
______ 4. Exposed ceilings: Exposed, open beam ceilings are where the underside of the roof decking can be
viewed from below. The owner may wish to maintain the architectural appearance; therefore, roofing nail
penetrations of the underside of the decking may not be acceptable. The provides the option of maintaining this
appearance.
______ 5. Ponding Water: The current roof system and/or deck of the building may not drain well and may cause
water to pond (accumulate) in low-lying areas of the roof. Ponding can be an indication of structural distress and
may require the review of a professional structural engineer. Ponding may shorten the life expectancy and
performance of the new roofing system. Ponding conditions may not be evident until the original roofing system is
removed. Ponding conditions should be corrected.
______ 6. Overflow Scuppers (wall outlets): It is required that rainwater flow off so that the roof is not overloaded
from a buildup of water. Perimeter/edge walls or other roof extensions may block this discharge if overflow
scuppers (wall outlets) are not provided. It may be necessary to install overflow scuppers in accordance with the
requirements of Chapter 15 and 16 herein and the Florida Building Code, Plumbing.
______ 7. Ventilation: Most roof structures should have some ability to vent natural airflow through the interior of
the structural assembly (the building itself). The existing amount of attic ventilation shall not be reduced.
Exception:
Attic spaces, designed by a Florida licensed engineer or registered architect to eliminate the attic
venting, venting shall not be required.
