A Wind Mitigation Inspection can save you a ton of money on your homeowners insurance. This is an inspection used to determine if the home has or does not have specific hurricane safety features. Our wind mitigation inspections check to see if the home has certain protective features that may help protect the home during a storm. Wind mitigation inspections also determine the condition of these features and whether or not the hurricane winds they have already taken damage from is enough to replace them. Among the things that wind mitigation inspections analyze are construction features such as the age of the home, age and type of roof coverings, type of roof to wall tie down attachments such as clips or hurricane straps, presence of a secondary water resistant barrier, the size and spacing of roof deck fasteners, and opening protection such as impact glass, storm shutters or panels.
Many homeowners don’t seem to be aware of the fact that wind mitigation inspections can qualify the home for wind or windstorm credits with any Florida homeowners insurance company. This can mean a substantial savings of up to 88% for homeowners. However, without wind mitigation inspections being done you can’t have this benefit and many homeowners pay much more money than they have to. After performing wind mitigation inspections many homeowners are pleased with the financial difference it makes in their insurance budgets and are grateful to have been informed of this often left out detail.
