Effective Date: December 31, 2023
The Tile Roofing Industry Alliance (TRI) in partnership with the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association, Inc. (FRSA) have been working together for over two decades on the development of installation manuals that represent proper installation practices, industry standards and the latest code requirements of roof tiles for the Florida market.
It was the consensus of a joint committee that we should re-write this manual in a way that addresses the latest wind codes, eliminates system designations, recognizes the latest products, reduces redundancy, adds drawings and paints a clear picture that provides clarity for contractors and inspectors regarding which products and processes are acceptable in the High Wind regions. The committee also adopted the recommendations of several premium upgraded products and enhanced installation practices to improve the long-term performance of tile roofing systems. The culmination of the committee’s efforts led to the creation of this 7th Edition Florida High Wind Concrete and Clay Tile Installation Manual for High Wind Applications in Florida.
