What is a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
A major concern to all Florida residents is being assured that your home is able to withstand heavy winds from a storm or hurricane. An insurance provider will likely utilize a wind mitigation inspection to determine the risk and safety for these circumstances. A homeowner may also obtain a Wind Mitigation after Installing a new roof. Generally, wind mitigation takes less than an hour- although most homeowners get a Wind Mitigation, as well as a Four Point Inspection, to earn the best price for their homeowner's insurance. While a full Home Inspection is more thorough, the main intent of both a Wind Mitigation and a Four Point Inspection is to inform insurance companies on the condition of your home. When purchasing a home, it is always recommended to add both to a Full Home Inspection to have a clear understanding of a home's safety and quality.
