Wind Mitigation Inspections

A wind mitigation inspection involves inspecting the features of a home that help resist hurricane force winds. If a home has these protective features correctly installed, it can qualify for wind credits with any insurance company in Florida. This can mean a substantial savings for home owners. The average discount in Florida is $300 off the annual premium!

Maverick Inspection Services examines…

  • the year the roof was last installed,
  • the roof decking type,
  • the method of installation,
  • the roof to wall connection used,
  • the geometric shape the roof,
  • if gables are properly braced according to the 2001 building code,
  • what foundation to wall restraint type is used, if any,
  • if there is a secondary water barrier on the roof, and
  • if all the openings of the home are protected with impact rated products.

Many home owners qualify for deductions they may not even know about. If your home has a hip roof alone, that can give you a deduction of 40% off the wind portion of your premium! For more details, contact us.
