FAQ

What do I need to know about fire safety and fire sprinklers?

Learn about issues regarding fire safety and fire sprinklers from the U.S Fire Administration. Learn about the New International Residential code Requirements for Residential Fire Sprinklers.

What should I know about the Deadline and costs for Retrofitting Condominiums in Florida with Fire Safety Sprinkler Systems?

The cost to retrofit a condominium with a fire safety sprinkler system ranged from a low of $595 to a high of $8,633 per unit. These costs vary depending on a number of factors. - The extent of sprinkler coverage in the building (complete or common areas), the age of the building, the size and number of units in the building or buildings and/ or type of construction, etc.

Many associations have forgone retrofits because they are cash strapped in the current economy. With many units sitting empty or in foreclosure and not paying assessments, some condominiums are scraping by just paying their normal expenses.

Another reason for this forbearance is that the deadline for such retrofits is far enough in the future (December 31, 2014) that they are, perhaps understandably, delaying this decision.

A condominium can expect to receive a discount of 5% on the all other perils portion of their property and casualty insurance policy if the structure is completely 'sprinklered'. However, this is not a certainty given that the risk a third party insurer is willing to bear may impact the decision after considering the nature, age, and condition of the property to be insured.
