Why Am I Getting a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
To put it simply… to SAVE MONEY. You are getting a Wind Mitigation Inspection in an attempt to reduce the premiums for the insurance on your home.
In recent years the insurance companies have re-evaluated how they approach the process of determining the premiums they charge for your insurance. Basically they look at your homes location and assume the worst case scenario regarding the structural features of your home that protect it from being damaged by high winds. Thus resulting in high premiums. But you have the right to have a Wind Mitigation Inspection to determine if the structural features of your home will decrease the assumed risk of the insurance company. For each mitigation feature that makes your home stronger the insurance company must reduce your premium by certain percentages. It is OUR JOB to find and document those Wind Mitigation Features FOR YOU.
