Tampa Wind Mitigation Inspection

Most Tampa homeowners can save up to 60% off their rates by providing documentation on structural features and construction methods proven to reduce the devastating damage of severe weather.  State law in Florida requires insurers to discount insurance rates for eligible homes, as there is evidence that certain wind-resistant elements reduce damage in high winds.  However, many Tampa homeowners are not aware of the state law; still others are not sure how to go about qualifying for these savings.  

Engaging Tampa Wind Inspection Professionals to conduct a Wind Mitigation Inspection is the first step towards determining the presence of wind resistant features, and ultimately taking advantage of huge savings on insurance costs.  Our inspection experts conduct a thorough assessment into whether your Tampa home incorporates the structural features and construction methods that comply with state standards.  

After the examination, our certified inspection specialist will quickly follow up with the paperwork homeowners need to establish their eligibility.  The inspection report is also sent to the insurance company so that your agent can calculate the appropriate rate discounts.  You can’t afford to wait:  Contact Tampa Wind Inspection Professionals to find out more and schedule your Wind Mitigation Inspection today.

Installing wind-resistive features on your home might be costly but the advantages far outweigh the cost. For one, having these on your home and property could greatly reduce the damage that would otherwise be incurred if a strong windstorm or hurricane were to sweep over Tampa. This translates to increased security and safety for you and your family during harsh weather conditions that might have the capacity to cause bodily harm or damage should the situation escalate. Aside from this, you also have the wind mitigation discounts to think about.

Florida law states that insurance companies must grant discounts to Tampa residents who have wind-resistant features on their home. To avail of these accounts, there are minimum qualifications that your home must meet. This where the Tampa Home Inspection Professionals come into the picture. Our certified inspectors will check and perform the wind mitigation inspection that could reduce your wind mitigation insurance premiums by up to 45%.

Windstorms are very damaging to your home for many reasons. Strong winds will assault your home through lifting, shearing, and lateral forces that will cause massive destruction to your house and property. Harsh conditions might also cause damage to your doors and windows, allowing the water to enter and further damage the inside of your home.

The wind mitigation inspection will begin with a Tampa Home Inspection Professional doing a quick visual check on the property before looking for key features that will make damage less likely during windstorms on your home. These features include the presence of gable end bracing, a hip roof, a concrete block construction, single or double roof straps, the installation of any secondary water resistance barriers, which will help you obtain that certification for the wind mitigation insurance.

  • Four Point Inspection

    Older home?
    Know the risk for peace of mind.  Even a well-maintained Tampa home suffers from structural issues and deterioration after 25 years of normal wear and tear.  Find out how the years have treated your older home with a Four Point Inspection from Tampa Wind Inspection Professionals.

     

    When an insurance company requires a Four Point Inspection on a home that is 25 years or older, this is because they need to understand risk before issuing a homeowners insurance policy.  The insurer must weigh and analyze concerns about the remaining service years and general condition of four major systems in a residence.  

    The roof, plumbing system, electrical components and HVAC are the areas of an older home that are most likely to show signs of deterioration and wear in certain ways over time.  The weather in Tampa affects these systems as much as use over several years.  It just so happens that these are the points that are most likely to cost insurers significant expenses for replacement or repair if damage does occur.  With a Four Point Inspection from Tampa Wind Inspection Professionals, homeowners and insurance companies can understand the condition of these elements and appreciate the effects of wear and tear.

  • Roof Inspection

    No house without a roof!

    No such thing as a simple leak.  The average Tampa homeowner doesn’t think twice about their roof - as long as it’s keeping them dry.  A big mistake, considering most leaks don’t manifest themselves on the ceiling below until significant damage has already taken place.  Prevent big problems later by scheduling a Roof Inspection with Tampa Wind Inspection Professionals now.

     

     

    At times, a Four Point Inspection may prompt an insurance company to require a more comprehensive investigation into the roof of a home.  Because the roof is one of the most expensive and fundamental components to a home, insurers want to know more about the expected remaining service life and look into areas of weakness.

    A Roof Inspection is a more thorough and painstaking examination of the structural soundness and stability of this key feature of a home, and it provides an estimation how long the roof is capable of lasting in the Tampa environment.  A helpful roof assessment will also include information on how upgrades and preventative maintenance measures can help extend its life.  Tampa Wind Inspection Professionals provide homeowners and insurers the essential details they need with a comprehensive Roof Inspection.
