Orlando & Central Florida Wind Mitigation Inspection

Wind Mitigation Inspection in Florida

All Florida insurance providers are required to offer windstorm premium discounts to homeowners meeting the requirements for enhanced structural features in their homes, such as hip roofs,hurricane straps or clips and roof covering. Houses built after 1994 in Miami-Dade or Broward Counties and houses built after 2002, which meet the 2001 Florida Building Code, in Florida already have many wind resistive construction features and could qualify for significant credits. A wind mitigation inspection will certify your homes existing construction features.  Home that required re-roofing after 2002, were required by the building code to be upgraded in the roof deck attachment, sheathing renailed, which also receives a discount.  If you have had replacement windows, doors, skylights, or garage doors that meet building code 2001 or later there are additional discounts available.

First Choice Home Inspections will verify the year the roof was last installed, the roof decking type and method of installation. What type of roof to wall construction was used, and the geometric shape the roof designs. For gable ends, have they been appropriately braced according to the 2001 building code? We will also check for a secondary water resistance (SWR) barrier on the roof. We will verify all the openings of the home (windows, skylights, glass block, doors and garage doors) are protected with wind and impact rated products.

Save $50.00 on your Wind Mitigation Inspection when combined with a residential home inspection.

A wind mitigation inspection is an inspection of the home covering areas of a structure that help protect it from strong hurricane force winds.  If a home has these protective features in place correctly, it can qualify for wind credits with any insurance company in Florida. This means a sizeable savings for the home owners.


Many Florida homes already meet the requirements for a wind mitigation credit that the home owner may not even know about.  Hip roofs and SWR barriers alone can save home owners hundreds of dollars a year on your insurance premiums!
