What features are inspected during a Wind Mitigation Survey?
The primary factors in wind mitigation discounts are the wind-resistant features of the property. These features include concrete block construction, gable end bracing, a hip roof, the presence of a single or double roof straps, the type of roof covering, impact resistant glass, reinforced garage doors, window shutters, the presence of a secondary water resistance barrier, property opening protection and property topography. Use the wind mitigation certification, the insurance company will be able to calculate the amount of discount and refund. A Wind Mitigation can only be performed by a certified inspector that has additional training and certification in Wind Mitigation. Wind mitigations pay for themselves.
Wind mitigation is an inspection that may qualify a property for discounts on windstorm insurance. These discounts reward those who have wind-resistance features on their property that decrease the amount of damage that may occur during a windstorm. Less damage equals less costs to insurance companies. These savings are passed on to the homeowner in the form of wind mitigation discounts.
