Navigating the Florida market with robust roof data

Are you ready to adapt as Florida roof risk evolves?

Florida's market and regulatory forces are changing the profile of roof exposure for many homeowners insurers. Powerful data and analytics can help maintain a clear picture.

Florida Homes

More than 35% of Florida homes have 5 or less years of remaining useful roof life.

Florida Roofs

22% of Florida roofs are in seriously deficient condition, compared with 1% nationally, due to extremes of heat, humidity, tropical storms, and UV rays.

Florida Hip Roofs

Florida has a higher percentage of hip roofs, 43%, compared with 28% nationwide. These roofs perform better in hurricanes or tropical storms.
