Wind Mitigation Inspection
Wind Mitigation Inspection and how can this save me on my homeowners insurance?
As Central Florida residents, we are always concerned with tropical storms and hurricanes during our Summer and early Fall months.
In 2006, Florida became the first state in the nation to require that insurance companies offer some reduction insurance costs if a wind mitigation inspection is sought out and certified upon review by a qualified inspector.
Wind mitigation inspections are not required by insurance companies or mortgage lenders –So why would someone desire to order a Wind Mitigation inspection? Because it could save YOU $$$$! That's right - it's a potential money saver!
Our clients tell us that they have saved hundreds of dollars per year by having a Wind Mitigation Inspection completed. This is a little known fact that so many people in Osceola, Orange, Seminole, Lake, and Polk counties are just not aware of.
How much could a person stand to save if they get a
Wind Mitigation Inspection?
Well it varies for sure...and here is how it works...An inspector will evaluate the wind-mitigating characteristics of your home or business. After the inspection, the inspector will make recommendations for any improvements or repairs the property owner could make on their home to enhance its strength against windstorm damage. They will then submit a state-standard inspection report to your insurance agency. The report is viewed as a measurement of your home's ability to withstand storm damage. An appropriate discount is then applied to the policy – in Florida, an average discount of 30% is typical, saving a few hundred to over $1000 annually on your insurance premium.
