Stronger more wind-resistive structures have fewer
windstorm-related losses (reduced costs to insurance companies)
Most existing homes have one or more construction features that will qualify for hurricane insurance premium discounts.
The typical wind mitigation inspection only takes 45 minutes to an hour and includes looking at inside structure elements and attachments as well as outside parts of your building systems. We would really like to get these discounts for you!
The following features qualify for a Windstorm Mitigation insurance:
Roof coverings that meet the 2001 Florida Building Code requirements
Roof sheathing (plywood) that have been installed with large, closely spaced nails
Newly constructed homes that meet the 2001 Florida Building Code
Hurricane clips/straps that hold the roof structure to the walls
A hip roof
Shutters and opening protection
The presence of roof to wall attachments (toe nails, clips or hurricane straps, and the presence of a secondary water resistance barrier)
