Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
During a Wind Mitigation Inspection, an inspector will be looking for attributes of of your home that could help limit or prevent damage during a windstorm. These attributes are documented on an inspection form (OIR-B1-1802) and forwarded to your insurance company. Your insurance company will then use the inspection results to help determine your premiums.
Why do I need to get a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
You don't necessarily need to get one but, because it may reduce your insurance premiums, it could be a good idea. Check with your insurance agent.
Who is legally qualified to complete a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
Notice that of all the professions that are “qualified” to perform wind mitigation inspections, ONLY licensed home inspectors are REQUIRED to have additional wind mitigation training. While the background, experience and education of all these professions are important, they are not enough. A wind mitigation inspection is a particular type of inspection that requires unique training. Having the proper training is a must. Without proper training, inspectors are essentially "flying blind" and you could be taking a big gamble with your time and money.
How much time does a Wind Mitigation Inspection take?
An average Wind Mitigation Inspection takes about 30 to 45 minutes on site.
Does the inspector need to get inside the house?
In almost all cases, yes. Exterior doors and garage doors may need to be inspected from the inside and/or in the open position. The inspector will also need access into the attic space.
What will the inspector be inspecting?
Some of the items your inspector will look at include:
How important is documentation (roofing contracts, etc.) to a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
Proof in the form of photos and/or documentation is required to accurately complete the inspection report. You want to collect any and all documentation that could help prove the type of wind mitigation attributes you have on your home AND have it available for your inspector to review. Any documentation related to your roof, opening protection (shutters, impact glass, exterior doors, garage doors, etc.) and general structure could be beneficial. Even if you think a piece of documentation will not help, it is better to have it available than not.
How much of a discount will I receive?
No inspector can answer this for you. Your insurance agent can tell you after your insurance company receives and processes the completed inspection report.
