When you are a resident of Florida, you understand the risks of living in a part of the country that is prone to hurricanes and other tropical windstorms. If you need a wind mitigation inspection for insurance or real estate requirements, you can trust the certified master inspectors at Evolve Property Inspections. Did you know that passing a wind mitigation inspection could significantly decrease your wind insurance endorsement premium? Let us walk you through a wind mitigation inspection and why you might need one.
What is a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
Typically, a wind mitigation inspection is required by an insurance company in order to determine the stability of the structure of a home or commercial building in case there is a wind event. Evolve Property Inspections’ inspectors will evaluate your home’s potential ability to withstand high winds based on several factors including the age of the home, building codes in place at the time of construction, age of the roof, and documentation that the roof was built to code at the time of construction, method of attachment of the roof to truss, rafters, and walls, presence of a secondary water resistance barrier, and the opening protection rating of the home.
When Do You Need a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
If you are purchasing a home, you will need a wind mitigation inspection, a 4-point inspection, and maybe even a roof inspection as you go through the process of acquiring your homeowners’ insurance. When it comes time to renew your policy, most insurance companies will also request a wind mitigation inspection and a 4-point inspection before they will provide a bid for insurance coverage.
