The state of Florida has passed legislation that require insurance companies to offer discounts when homes have certain features that hold up to wind. Wind mitigation is an inspection that may qualify a property for discounts on windstorm insurance. From an insurance company’s standpoint, these features will help a home better withstand a windstorm which equates to lower claims. These savings are passed on to the homeowner in the form of wind mitigation discounts.
What does a Wind Mitigation Survey consist of?
The primary factors in wind mitigation discounts are the wind-resistant features of the property.
These features include:
- Concrete block construction
- Gable end bracing
- Hip roof
- Single or double roof straps
- Type of roof covering
- Impact resistant glass on the windows
- Secondary water barrier
