Wind Mitigation:
A wind mitigation inspection is an inspection that identifies all of the wind resistant features employed in the construction of a building (house, condo, apartment, etc.). We recommend you check your wind mitigation report for an expiration date. Reports are only good for 5 years and a new inspection is required in order to receive your insurance discounts. During a wind mitigation inspection, a certified inspector (like ourselves) reports on the key features that may decrease the amount of damage your home suffers during a hurricane or strong windstorm. These features fall into several categories, such as exterior construction type, roof shape and construction methods, age of roof covering, door and window opening protection as well as the actual year the home was built. Another factor may be the elevation of a property and how it relates to wind speed.
