Wind Mitigation Inspections:
A Wind Mitigation Inspection is a valuable inspection service that may reduce your windstorm insurance.
Wind Insurance credits/discounts are available for building features that reduce damage during high wind events. The Wind Mitigation discounts are justified because stronger, more wind-restive structures have lower windstorm losses, which mean reduced costs to insurance companies. Most existing structures have one or more wind restive construction features and may qualify for some Wind Mitigation insurance discounts.
