What Is a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
A wind mitigation inspection (also called a windstorm mitigation inspection) is where a certified inspector looks over a property for specific weather withstanding features. These features can be coverings to the way your roof is attached to your home and how your roof is sealed to prevent water from entering. Though a wind mitigation inspection is not required to get Florida homeowners insurance, it can result in substantial savings. A wind mitigation inspection is the only inspection that can significantly reduce the cost of your insurance policy. That’s because this inspection can affirm whether your home has features that drastically decrease the severity of property loss from hurricane wind. As always, the safer and stronger your home is, the lower your premiums may be.
