If you are buying a home, or if you already own a home, here in Orlando, then you have likely had someone talk to you about having a wind mitigation inspection performed. But what is a wind mitigation inspection, and how does it benefit you.
In the most basic terms, a wind mitigation inspection is performed by a qualified professional inspector to determine your home's strength against the wind. An inspector checks many things on your home in this regard, and more particularly on your roof and in your attic.
So why would you get a wind mitigation? Well, it really comes down to two reasons:
1: You Want to Protect Your Home: We have a lot of wind here, and the worst way to find out if your home and roof are strong enough is to wait to see if there is an issue. A wind mitigation inspection will help prevent these issues.
2: It Saves You Money: A wind mitigation inspection is often used for insurance purposes. If you present your insurance company with this inspection, typically the insurance savings pay for the inspection - and then some!
