30/40 Year Recertification Inspection

Ensuring Structural and Electrical Integrity for Lasting Safety

Why 30/40 Year Recertification

The 30/40 Year Recertification Building Inspection is a requirement in Miami Dade and Broward counties, intended to verify in a reasonable way, that the structure and electrical system of the building under consideration is safe for its purposed use and present occupancy.

The new state law that went into effect in May 2022, updated and created new requirements that strengthened the recertification program by including the inspection of additional building components and providing a more detailed look into existing buildings.

Among the new requirements, the new law mandates:

  • The use of structural engineers for the structural component of threshold buildings. A “threshold building” is a building greater than three stories, or 50 feet in height, or has an assembly occupancy classification as defined in the Florida Building Code which exceeds 5,000 square feet in area and an occupant content of greater than 500 persons. Requiring structural engineers to certify the structural inspection of threshold buildings is expected to bring an added measure of safety to the recertification assessment for these buildings given the specialized knowledge, training and experience presented by a structural engineer.

  • The use of electrical engineers for the electrical component of recertification. The electrical component of recertification reports for threshold buildings will similarly require that electrical engineers be used in assessing threshold buildings given the life-safety threat posed by having electrical systems in disrepair.

30/40 Year Recertification Components

Electrical Inspection

An Electrical Professional Engineer, specialized in Electrical Power and Distribution, will be responsible for the electrical inspection and parking illumination inspection.

Structural Inspection

A Structural Engineer, accepted as a Florida Board Recognized Structural Engineer (FRSE) by the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE) will be responsible for the structural inspection of the building.

Our Inspection Services

Here at South Florida Building Inspections, we provide the 30/40 Years Building Recertification Inspection with professionals that have a combined experience of more than 50 years in the field. We also include a thermographer Level II with Electrical PE license to perform the Infrared Thermography Inspection if the electrical service for the property is 400A or more. This inspection is a new requirement mandated by the current law and it is quoted in addition to the Electrical Inspection, only if the property or building requires it.

We do not only have the qualifications and the expertise for the job, but also very competitive pricing. While the final cost for a specific inspection depends on several factors, our price for inspections stars as low as:
- $950 per specialty (Electrical and Structural) for 30/40 Year Building Recertification Inspection.
- $600 for Parking Illumination Inspection.
- $800 for Infrared Thermography Inspection.
