Why is the Florida Milestone Inspection Crucial? The importance of the Florida Milestone Inspections lies in ensuring the safety and longevity of buildings within Florida. Given the natural aging of structures, which may affect their structural soundness, and the severe weather conditions, including annual tropical storms, these inspections are vital for resident safety. The Milestone Inspection serves as a preventive measure.


In accordance with the date of issuance of their certificate of occupancy, buildings are required to undergo their first Milestone Inspection as they reach 30 years of age, followed by subsequent inspections every 10 years to maintain their condition.

phase one florida milestone inspection process


This initial step serves as the first shield of protection. Licensed engineers in Florida undertake an exhaustive visual survey of the property. They meticulously scrutinize every accessible space, prioritizing the building’s core structural elements. The goal is to certify the building’s structural integrity and confirm its safety. This phase is not about adherence to current building or fire codes; instead, it focuses on the fundamental health and stability of the construction. If this phase uncovers no significant issues, the process is deemed complete.

phase two florida milestone inspection process


Regard this phase as an in-depth investigation. Triggered only if the first phase reveals serious structural issues, Phase 2 is a more rigorous exploration. It may include various tests, ranging from non-invasive to invasive methods. The aim here is to thoroughly understand the extent of structural damage and formulate a strategic plan for the required repairs.
