What Your Wind Mitigation Inspection Includes

The Age of the Home

We research to see if the home application permit was issued after March 1st, 2002

The Age of the Roof

We research to see if the roof application permit was issued after March 1st, 2002

The Geometry of the Roof

We check to see if less than 10% of the total roof perimeter has gable or flat features. This is one of the biggest credits if the home qualifies.

The Size of Roof Deck Fasteners & Spacing

We use specialized equipment to determine the size of fasteners and the spacing between them.

The Roof to Wall Connections

We inspect where the roof and wall connect to see how it is attached.

Presence of SWR

We investigate to see if the roof has a self-adhering underlayment known as an SWR or Peel and Stick.

The Protection of Openings

We inspect doors and windows for "impact rating". This determines the strength of these openings during a hurricane or high winds.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will I save on my home insurance?

Estimated savings on home insurance can vary significantly depending on your home's features. It's best to discuss potential discounts and estimated savings directly with your insurance agent. While home inspectors can identify your home's attributes, they can't determine the exact savings you'll achieve.

How long does a Wind Mitigation Inspection take?

A wind mitigation inspection typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour. During this time, a home inspector will walk around your property, inspect a few components in the attic, and examine all openings.

When will I receive the report?

The inspection report will be completed and sent to you on the same day as the inspection. Reports are generally sent between 5 PM and 8 PM and will be accessible once the inspection agreement is signed and payment is received.

How did I lose my insurance credits?

Homeowners may occasionally lose insurance discounts due to errors in previous wind mitigation inspections, often from incorrect documentation of home features. Thankfully, such cases are rare, and most homeowners still save on premiums annually.
