1. What is Wind Mitigation?
Wind mitigation is an inspection that may help qualify a property for various discounts on windstorm insurance or on aspects of their current Florida home insurance policy. The available discounts reward those who have wind-resistant features on their property or as part of their home; these features help decrease the amount of damage that may result from a severe storm such as a hurricane.
2. What features of my property will be inspected during a Wind Mitigation Survey?
The major factors that influence wind mitigation discounts are the wind-resistant features of the property which may include: concrete block construction, a hip roof, gable end bracing, single or double roof straps, impact resistance glass and reinforced garage doors, window shutters, and much more. If a property is eligible for discounts, the average homeowner is likely to see savings between 10-40% in the first year.
3. Why does my home need protection from severe weather, like windstorms?
Hurricanes and other severe wind-inducing storms likely produce ruthless damage to a home—simultaneously bombarding your home with great force. Damages can range from broken windows and doors to a stripped roof; all of which can lead to water damage and debris wreaking havoc throughout your home.
Luckily, Patrons Insurance Agency, Inc. works with many leading local and nationwide insurance carriers which offer valuable discounts on homeowners insurance policies, due to the results of your Wind Mitigation survey. To learn more, visits Patrons’ Virtual Insurance Office today!
