WIND MITIGATION INSPECTIONS
THOROUGH WIND MITIGATION INSPECTIONS
A windstorm inspection, also referred to as a windstorm mitigation inspection, windstorm insurance inspection or wind mitigation inspection, is a kind of home inspection common in the coastal areas of the Southeastern United States. The purpose of a windstorm inspection is to determine the appropriateness of a given structure’s construction in the event of strong winds, such as those present in a hurricane.
Wind mitigation inspections look for construction features that have been shown to reduce losses in hurricanes, such as a hip roof, concrete block construction, the presence of gable end bracing, shutters and opening protections, the presence of roof to wall attachments such as toe nails, clips or hurricane straps, and the presence of a secondary water resistance barrier.
SAVE ON YOUR HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE
One of the benefits of a wind mitigation inspection is that many homeowner insurance companies give you a discount on your homeowner’s insurance after you have had an inspection by a qualified professional such as us. After your inspection, and with a “passing grade”, so to speak, you can submit the needed forms (which we provide) to your insurance carrier. Oftentimes, the discount you receive more than pays for the inspection itself.
