What are Florida's Requirements Regarding Hurricane Protection?

Florida has stringent building codes to safeguard homes and their occupants during storms, which vary depending on your location and the age of your home. Requirements often include impact-resistant windows, storm shutters, hurricane straps or clips for your roof, and reinforced garage doors, among other measures.  

Many insurance providers also require certain upgrades to protect your home against hurricanes and high winds.
