What Components are Included?

Florida law requires condominium and cooperative associations to complete a Structural Integrity Reserve Study at least once every 10 years after the creation of the association. The reserve study is required for each qualifying building on the association's property. A building is considered qualifying if it is at least three stories in height. The SIRS must include an inspection of the following structural elements:

  1. Roofs
  2. Primary Structural Systems (Load Bearing Walls and Railings)
  3. Fire Protection Systems
  4. Plumbing
  5. Electrical systems
  6. Waterproofing, exterior, painting, & stucco
  7. Common area windows and exterior doors
  8. Any other items that have a deferred maintenance expense or replacement cost that exceeds $10,000 and the failure to replace or maintain such items negatively affects any of the above referenced building components.

At a Minimum, the SIRS Must:

  1. Identify which common areas are visually inspected
  2. Determine the estimated remaining useful life of the inspected areas as well as the estimated cost of replacement or deferred maintenance.
  3. Give recommendations regarding the annual reserve amount that would cover the estimated cost of the necessary replacement or deferred maintenance by the end of the remaining useful life of the inspected areas.
