What is a wind mitigation inspection and why do I need one?

In 1992, Hurricane Andrew had devastating affects on the insurance and housing industries. Florida Building Code underwent major updates around 2002/2003 that made significant modifications to the way houses are built. These changes affected how the roof covering materials (shingles or tiles, for example) are attached, how the deck boards are attached, how the roof structure is secured to the walls of a home, and more.

The Wind Mitigation inspection checks to see which of these features are implemented in your home. If you've had your roof replaced, it describes what was done to bring your home up to or close to current standards. It's an assessment of risk that does one major thing for you: It qualifies you for credits (discounts) on your insurance premiums.

What is my insurance provider or lender looking for?
The wind mitigation encompasses the construction methods used in constructing the building envelope of the home. Essentially, the point is to see how well a home will hold up against wind and debris in a major storm. This information is then used to calculate qualified credits (discounts) on your insurance policy.
