FRSA and CFRSA Host Building Officials Program FRSA Staff FRSA and local affiliate, the Central Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association (CFRSA), along with the Central Florida Chapter of the Building Officials Association of Florida (BOAF), hosted a joint meeting at FRSA’s Training Center. The lunch meeting was attended by approximately 50 contractors and building department members. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss a variety of topics, such as: ■ Synthetic dry-in requirements and proper installation (overlaps of courses, hips, ridges) ■ Installation of drip edge without removal of gutters (existing gutter installed through existing drip edge) ■ Requirement of finish products installed at dryin inspection (step flashing, O’Hagin vents, etc.) mostly on new construction ■ Verification of positive drainage on flat roofs ■ Ladder assist inspections; need to have a call or timeframe for inspection ■ Dry-in requirement when installing over existing self-adhered.

Manny Oyola, Eagle Roofing Products, demonstrated the correct way to install two layers of synthetic underlayment dry-in, showing laps and exposures on a mock-up brought to FRSA for the event. In the training center, Mike Silvers, CPRC, FRSA’s Technical Director, Bob Pike, Seminole County Building Official and Brian Kuehner, Collis Roofing and CFRSA President, facilitated the discussion. Having both contractors and building departments in the same room gave everyone the opportunity to understand difficulties and viewpoints from each other’s side. Great discussion was held and many positive comments were received. FRM
