A wind mitigation inspection is an inspection of the home covering areas of the structure that help protect it from hurricane force winds. If a home has these protective features correctly installed, in most cases it qualifies for wind credits with any insurance company in Florida. This inspection can save you up to 80% off of your homeowners insurance.
We determine the year the home was built, if the home was built on 9/1/1994 or after the home qualifies for the 1994 or 2001 South Florida Building Code credit.
We determine the year the roof was built, a roof built on or after 9/1/1994 also qualifies for a windstorm credit.
We will access the attic for hurricane features in the construction. We will inspect the roof decking type, the size of the nails used to fasten your deck and the nailing pattern of the roof deck, all of which qualifies for discounts on your policy.
We will examine the roof to wall attachments and determine whether double wraps, single wraps, clips, or toe nails were used.
We will determine what geometric shape your roof has, a hip roof alone qualifies for a 40% discount on your insurance premium.
If possible we will determine if you can receive this credit. Secondary Water Resistance is a method used to protect the interior of your home if the roof covering and underlayment blow off during a storm.
We will check every single exterior opening on your home and determine what type of opening protection credit you deserve.
