Wind Mitigation Inspection


A Wind Mitigation Inspection…

is an inspection and qualification of how the exterior systems of your home are tied together. There are 8 specific areas that your insurance company requires information on, in order to offer you discounts on the Wind portion of your Insurance Policy. Almost every house regardless of age qualifies for a discount of some type, & the discounts can be huge!!!

You may say….”My house is too old” WRONG!!!
We saved one homeowner $1,100.00 a year on her 1966 home

Who qualifies?

The good news is almost every house qualifies for some discount! Houses built under the 2001 building code (which was adopted 3/2002) will receive the most discounts. But many of the construction techniques that qualify a house for a discount were commonly used prior to the adoption of the latest Building Codes! In fact, houses built in the 1990’s have seen the most discounts, as they have been given no consideration prior to this.

How much money can I save?

Discounts range from 20% to 60% off the wind portion of your policy. In most cases, the wind portion of the premium is the largest part. Our customers have received $100.00 to $2,000.00 off their insurance premium. Why wouldn’t you?

How can I get my discount?

The inspection process is simple, taking approximately 20 minutes to gather the necessary information. We must inspect the interior of your attic and ask you a few questions. We will email or send the forms to your insurance company along with all applicable photos. Your insurance company will contact you with the amount of your discount, either by a reduction of your premium at renewal or a refund check if you have already paid your premium.

Why hasn’t my insurance agent told me about this?

Some are not informed and most were not aware of the discounts until recently. The insurance agents continue to be amazed at how much their customers have saved by having an inspection performed.
