Quality Built’s program helps assure that Florida citizens and policyholders will not suffer the harmful consequences and costs associated with unacceptable or false inspection reports.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
Quality Built, LLC (Quality Built), Florida’s leading Windstorm Quality Assurance Company, and Florida Peninsula Insurance Company (Florida Peninsula) are pleased to announce Florida Peninsula as the latest participating carrier in the QB Windstorm Plus™ program, a private retail inspection program available to all Florida homeowners working with participating insurance companies to eliminate costly and disruptive windstorm re-inspections for up to 5 five years.*
Quality Built’s Windstorm Plus program allows policyholders to obtain a complete and accurate windstorm mitigation inspection on their own that will help them avoid the administrative burdens and costs of re-inspection for a period of up to five years when purchasing insurance from participating carriers.1 With the addition of Florida Peninsula, Quality Built’s participating carriers now serve more than 400,000 policyholders who may participate in the program. Quality Built is working hard to expand the number of participating carriers and make the Windstorm Plus™ program available to all policyholders in Florida.
Launched in August 2012, the Quality Built Windstorm Plus program is the first and only windstorm mitigation inspection program in Florida designed to provide policyholders and insurance agents with certainty and peace of mind with respect to windstorm mitigation credits. Each Windstorm Plus inspection is produced via a rigorous process that requires the use of trained, licensed and properly insured inspectors and inspection companies, a final third-party quality review by Quality Built prior to acceptance of the inspection report, and the highest standards of customer service to ensure the results of each inspection are clear to each and every customer. Quality Built's approved Inspection Management Companies and their inspectors are fully reviewed and approved by Quality Built. Quality Built’s program helps assure that Florida citizens and policyholders will not suffer the harmful consequences and costs associated with unacceptable or false inspection reports.
Because Quality Built’s Windstorm Plus program process exceeds the training, insurance, quality, and customer service requirements of the largest windstorm re-inspection programs, a re-inspection will not be required by any of the Windstorm Plus program's participating carriers for the life of the underlying OIR-B1-1802 inspection form, up to 5 years.* As the list of participating carriers continues to grow, so does the value of the Windstorm Plus inspection to agents and consumers alike. Homeowners and agents benefit from the certainty of discounts, clear accountability for the inspection process, and the highest standards of customer service in the industry. It all adds up to fewer conflicts, fewer surprises, and a smoother experience for everyone involved.
Beth Michaelis, President of Quality Built noted, “We are extremely pleased to welcome Florida Peninsula, an important and strong insurance carrier, into Quality Built’s Windstorm Plus program. By adding additional participating carriers to our program, we continue to bring more stability and certainty to the windstorm inspection marketplace which it desperately needs. Carriers, agents and policyholders alike are benefitting from the efficiency and sense of relief that comes with obtaining a "one and done" windstorm inspection that will not be troubled by a disruptive re-inspection.”
The Windstorm Plus™ inspection may be ordered directly from Quality Built (http://store.qualitybuilt.com) or through the ordering process of one of our approved inspection management companies, such as Don Meyler Inspections (via http://www.dmiaccess.com) or other approved companies as set forth on the Quality Built website.
