- In either HVHZ or Non-HVHZ regions:
- All joints in structural panel roof sheathing or decking shall be covered with a minimum 4-inch (102 mm) wide strip of self-adhering polymer modified bitumen tape applied directly to the sheathing or decking. The deck and self-adhering polymer modified bitumen tape shall be covered with one of the underlayment systems approved for the particular roof covering to be applied to the roof.
- The entire roof deck shall be covered with an approved asphalt impregnated 30# felt underlayment or approved synthetic underlayment installed with nails and tin-tabs in accordance with Section 1518.2, 1518.3 , or 1518.4 of the Florida Building Code, Building.
