WHAT IS A WIND MITIGATION INSPECTION?
A wind-mitigation inspection is required when writing or renewing home-owner’s insurance policies in most Florida counties. We provide wind mitigation inspections in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami/Dade counties. The goal of the inspection is to communicate and report the status of wind resistant structural components within a home. When the components are present and intact, the homeowner will likely receive a premium discount. A wind mitigation inspection can also serve as an informative tool to homeowners who are interested in knowing how safe their home will be in high wind scenarios. They will also be aware of the upgrades necessary to receive insurance deductions and help their home withstand higher wind speeds.
WHY CHOOSE US FOR YOUR WIND-MITIGATION INSPECTION?
Unlike some of our competitors, American Home Detectives’ inspectors perform wind-mitigation inspections with the same care as home inspections. This is because we understand that a mistake can cost our clients thousands in excess homeowner’s policy premiums over the years. Along with meeting insurance deduction requirements, a wind mitigation inspection will provide your family with peace-of-mind that your home can withstand high wind situations. This is why we are among the very few inspection firms offering a list of potential upgrades designed to protect your property and family. Some of these upgrades include:
- Concrete block construction
- Hip roof
- Functional shutters
- Gable end bracing
- Opening protections
- Clips, toe nails or hurricane straps
- Secondary water resistance barrier
