A wind mitigation inspection is a valuable inspection service that will reduce your windstorm insurance.
Generally, a wind mitigation inspection is needed to determine which credits apply to a home. During a wind mitigation inspection, Guardian Angel looks for key features and add-ons that reduce the amount of damage your home may suffer in the event of a hurricane or strong windstorm. Wind insurance discounts are available for building features that reduce damage during high wind events. The wind mitigation discounts are justified because stronger, more wind-resistive structures have lower windstorm losses, which mean reduced costs to Insurance companies. Most existing structures have one or more wind resistive construction features and may qualify for some wind mitigation insurance discounts.
What is Wind Mitigation?
Wind mitigation is the process of adding features to your home that help withstand or increase resistance to high winds caused by a major storm or hurricane.
According to the Florida Division of Emergency Management, 15% - 70% of home insurance premiums were reduced by having a Wind Mitigation Inspection completed.
In addition to saving you money, mitigating your home against severe weather can also protect your family in the event of a major storm. Installing hurricane shutters on your windows or hurricane straps on your roof reduces the risk of flying debris penetrating your home and putting your family in danger.
Insurance companies in Florida are required to recognize submitted wind inspections performed by qualified personnel and will provide discounts based on the construction and/or mitigation features of your home. A wind mitigation inspection may “SAVE” you, the property owner up to 30% on your insurance policy, possibly saving you over $1000 annually. There are currently 9 qualifying discounts and we will Inspect all 9 areas to help you get the best discount available.
