Don’t be satisfied with “built-to-code” construction. Although all buildings permitted are built to code, the Florida Building Code is only a minimal standard of building. You should request your remodeling be built using “Best Practices”. Found in many trade journals and construction books, this quality construction practice is based on a true understanding of building science, and will ensure beautiful and long-lasting details, and fewer call-backs. Build with the same pride of craftsmanship like they did in “the good ole days”.
