Frequently Asked Questions

A Structural Integrity Reserve Study (SIRS) is a comprehensive, non-invasive inspection of a building's critical infrastructure. It evaluates the safety of the structure and provides an estimate for the cost of potential repairs or replacements. Florida law mandates that certain components must be included in this study and adequate reserve funding is allocated for their maintenance.

The following eight items are essential for inclusion in the SIRS:

  1. Roofing
  2. Load-bearing walls and other primary structural components
  3. Fireproofing and fire protection systems
  4. Plumbing infrastructure
  5. Electrical systems
  6. Waterproofing and exterior paint
  7. Common-area windows and doors
  8. Any structural items with a cost exceeding $10,000

The report should offer an in-depth analysis of both the legally required elements and additional community-specific reserve components. This all-encompassing approach ensures a comprehensive understanding of the total cost of ownership for the association. Associations are responsible for appropriately allocating existing reserve funds between structural (funding-required) and non-structural components. This comprehensive approach aids associations in confidently navigating their annual budgeting process.
