What Is a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
As a homeowner with windstorm insurance, state law entitles you to certain premium reductions, but without an inspection, you can’t get them! If you haven’t had a wind mitigation inspection at your current home, you are PROBABLY PAYING TOO MUCH FOR YOUR HONE OWNERS INSURANCE!
During a wind mitigation inspection, a certified inspector reports on the key features that may decrease the amount of damage your home suffers during a hurricane or strong windstorm. These features fall into several categories, such as exterior construction type, roof shape and construction methods, age of roof covering, door and window opening protection as well as the actual year the home was built. Another factor may be the elevation of a property and how it relates to wind speed.
Our company is proud to provide quality Wind Mitigation Inspections. We work closely with other industry leaders in educating inspectors on how to properly perform these inspections. You will receive the most detailed report that will completely satisfy the insurance carrier beyond their expectations without the hassle of an insurance carrier reinspection.

Below are several maintenance tips that will extend the life of your roof and save you a lot of money.
Install proper ventilation and adequate insulation.
This is among the most critical, and often overlooked, factors in extending the life of your roof. Without proper ventilation, a buildup of heat and moisture in your attic can lead to roof rot and diminished insulation efficiency. In short, properly insulated attic spaces allow your roof to perform as efficiently as possible.
Keep gutters and downspouts clear
.Leaves, twigs and other debris can clog your gutter system, causing expensive water leaks in your attic and interior living spaces. If they are clogged, gutters and downspouts can’t channel water and snowmelt away from your home. You’ll also want to inspect your gutters for signs of damage.
Trim your trees.
Take a look at the trees around your home. If there are any limbs or branches hanging over your roof (or growing close), have them removed. Falling branches can lead to expensive roofing repairs.
Roof flashing consists of metal strips installed where the main body of the roof meets up with the home’s siding, chimneys or skylights. Because many roof leaks begin at these connection points, check the flashings for holes, cracks, or other signs of damage or deterioration.
Perform regular inspections
It’s a good idea to perform a routine inspection on a regular basis. Look for signs of damage on the roof surfaces, as well as in the attic and interior of your home. Small leaks or minor damage can often be repaired for little cost. Ignoring them, and allowing them to become major problems, can be a very expensive mistake.
