If your historic building is damaged during a storm, a windstorm exemption will allow you to replace damaged windows, shutters, doors, and other character defining elements with in-kind items rather than those that meet the current wind code requirements.

If the property is not exempt, and your building is over 50% damaged in a storm, you may not be able to rebuild the structure.

View the current list of exempted homes.
