FORT MYERS, FLORIDA (August 9, 2012) Florida roofing codes were tightened recently to address safety concerns and reflect technological advances in the industry. Extreme weather conditions in Florida are particularly damaging to a home’s or building’s roof. Hurricanes and steady tropical sun bear down on roofs without mercy, while heavy thunderstorms pound upon them throughout the year. Roofing projects have always been serious undertakings. But now, it is without a doubt, necessary for a consumer to be educated about the entire process.


The roof is a building’s most vulnerable component. A leaking or damaged roof can expose a building’s interior, inhabitants, products, and property to water and wind damage, therefore it is essential that the new roof system is code compliant. Regulations governing building requirements, licensing, insurance liabilities, and release of lien must be considered and reviewed for each project.


West Coast FL Enterprises, a longstanding and respected roofing company in Southwest Florida, has published a new eBook, Do’s and Don’ts of Roofing – For YOU the Consumer. The eBook is written specifically for the consumer and provides clear direction, while highlighting pitfalls, in choosing a roofing contractor. Issues such as those listed above are concisely defined and effectively addressed.


“The roof is the most important part of a home or business. It is what helps keep our families and employees safe,” explains Scott Otey of West Coast Florida Enterprises. “Since homes and commercial buildings are usually a person’s largest financial investment, it’s crucial to obtain important information when searching for a trustworthy and experienced roofing contractor.”
