Regulations for Roof Rebuilding

John Zachem, secretary of the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, issued an order Friday allowing the suspension of certain regulations in the 37 counties listed in FEMA’s Disaster Declaration, including Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe. He declared it necessary “to suspend burdensome regulations and provide the resources needed during this difficult time to help quickly repair and rebuild.”

Zachem also waived all department fees for occupational or professional businesses that must relocate or reopen because of damage caused by Irma.

Roofing work need not be subcontracted from a certified or registered contractor to repair or install flat roofs or roofs made of wood shakes, asphalt, fiberglass shingles, tiles or metal, the declaration said. hURRICANE IRMA AFTERMATH: State eases roof rebuilding regulations | Miami Herald
