Garage Door

We have tried our best to provide all the information necessary on this page to help you understand the process for permitting your project from beginning to the end. 

The Florida Building Code regulates the design and construction of garage doors on all kinds of buildings. The requirements for garage door design are largely affected by the frequency of hurricanes and tropical storms.  In all of Florida, garage doors or rolling doors must withstand winds of a specified speed and flying debris of a specified force.

Garage doors are required to approved by the State of Florida through their Product Approval Process.  The Product Approval number should be affixed on the garage door.  To verify a Product Approval Number https://floridabuilding.org/pr/pr_app_srch.aspx

The permit is made ready for issuance when the application has been recevied.  An automatic email notification will be sent to the email provided if you submit online.   Applications submitted in person will be made ready while you wait.  

The inspections identified on the job card/online inspection tab are required for your project.   If you feel there are missing inspections or something is not required, please contact the plan reviewers at 386-986-3782.  

Inspections can be scheduled through the online permitting portal or by calling our automated inspection system at 386-986-4747.
