Florida State IECC Energy Codes - COMcheck Compliance

Florida Energy Codes

Florida contractors, architects and do-it-yourselfers often have to deal with environmental circumstances that can wreak havoc on metal buildings. Extreme heat, abundant moisture, humidity and inclement weather are just a few of the considerations Floridians must take into account when insulating their metal buildings, and frequently weather conditions bring with them unavoidable hazards that require insulation repair and retrofit.

We have been assisting Florida residents with metal building insulation and vinyl insulation repair for decades. In fact, more than 50 percent of our fiber glass insulation volume distributed nationally is designated for metal building retrofit applications – and the retrofit insulation installation process is easier than you may think, once you have the proper products and tools.

Our steel building insulation specialists can assist you in selecting the proper fiber glass blanket sizes for your steel structure or commercial roof insulation project. We can also assist with selecting the facing that will best suit your application. The facing is the white or black polypropylene fabric that serves as a vapor barrier cover it is laminated to, and over, the fiberglass blankets. WMP-VR-R is the most commonly-used facing material; however we do carry a wide variety of facings with varying levels of durability and strength. Generally, the price increase for increasingly durable facing materials is minimal – for example, upgrading to a WMP-50 facing, twice as strong as the WMP-VR-R variety, will only cost you an additional 4 cents or so per square foot.

We provide low cost insulation materials to Florida consumers. Call 1-800-486-8415 to speak with our experienced sales staff about repairing or enhancing your metal building's insulation and how it can save you substantial amounts of money over the lifetime of your building.

Florida residents should note that all commercial structures erected in the state must adhere to the energy codes stipulated by Florida Building Code 5th Edition which became effective June 30, 2015 commercial energy codes.
