TIPS TO HELP
If you are thinking about making changes to your home that will improve the homes posture on the wind mitigation, consult with your insurance agent first to see how much of an additional discount you can get for the proposed changes. You can use this info to calculate return on investment and decide if it is worth it to you.
A general rule of thumb, and this greatly varies by insurance company, is that a house 30 years or older will require a four point inspection.
Ask your insurance agent to show you the wind mitigation discount calculation. It can be a complex calculation and it’s easy to make costly mistakes.
Ask your agent to follow their underwriter’s discount policies to the letter. The underwriting may change your premium or even cancel your policy if their review of the wind mitigation reveals a discrepancy. Keep in mind this review may take up to a year – don’t be unpleasantly surprised!
If your home was built to the 2001 FBC (permit application date on of after March 1, 2002) most insurance companies offer a standard discount package for 2001 FBC homes. Compare your premium calculated with a wind mitigation report to the standard package. Insist on the lower of the two premiums.
A windstorm mitigation inspection is a verification of the installed protective features of a home. There is no pass or fail, only documentation of the home's current state at the time of inspection. The form is used to determine the discount that can be applied toward you homeowner's insurance premiums. All insurance discounts are not the same, please contact you insurance agent for quotes.
