Wind Mitigation Inspection

What Is A Wind Mitigation Inspection?

Wind mitigation inspections do more than give residential homeowners a peace of mind, they can help lower insurance premium. Although Floridians are well-versed when it comes to protecting their home from a hurricane, many forget about the roof. Your home inspector or realtor may have suggested to you a wind inspection, but why?

A wind mitigation inspection looks at seven key areas of your roof to determine how well it will withstand water intrusion and heavy winds. Your roof is your first line of defense.

Your wind mitigation inspection will examine:

  • Construction Year
  • Roof Covering
  • Roof to Wall Attachment
  • Roof Shape & Slope
  • Roof Decking
  • Secondary Water
  • Resistance
  • Opening Protection
