What is a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
Florida Statute 626.0629 requires insurance companies to offer Florida homeowners "discounts, credits, or other rate differentials" for construction techniques that reduce damage and loss in windstorms.
Houses built after 1994 in Miami-Dade or Broward Counties and houses built after 2002 in the rest of the state generally have many winds resistive construction features and are likely to qualify for significant discounts. Most houses in south Florida have at least one feature that will qualify owners for a discount on the wind portion of their policy. Check our low, competitive fee! Discounts apply when you order your wind mitigation survey with a 4 point survey, roof certification or other inspection services.
Our state licensed home & property inspectors will inspect, verify and report your home's construction features on standardized forms for you to submit to your insurance company. Stop over paying on your homeowner's insurance. Call us today and find out how much you can save.
Windstorm inspections look for construction features that have been shown to reduce losses in hurricanes, such as a hip roof, Roofing material replacement, the presence of hurricane shutters and/or opening protection materials, the presence of roof to wall attachments such as clips or hurricane straps, and the presence of a secondary water resistance barrier.
