Wind Mitigation Inspection Jacksonville Florida

Certified Wind Mitigation Inspector, Jacksonville Florida

Owning a home in beautiful Jacksonville, FL comes with its perks – stunning beaches, vibrant culture, and of course, the occasional hurricane. While these storms bring much-needed rain, they can also wreak havoc on your property. That's why wind mitigation inspections are becoming increasingly important for Jacksonville homeowners.

What is a Wind Mitigation Inspection?

A wind mitigation inspection focuses on specific features of your home's construction that can help it resist damage caused by high winds and windborne debris during storms. These features can include:

  • Roof covering: Impact-resistant shingles or metal roofs are more likely to stay put during strong winds.

  • Roof deck attachment: The way your roof deck is securely fastened to the trusses plays a crucial role in its wind resistance.

  • Roof shape: Hip roofs tend to perform better in high winds compared to gable roofs.

  • Wall construction: Homes with certain wall bracing systems offer additional wind resistance.

  • Windows and doors: Impact-resistant windows and doors significantly decrease the risk of windblown objects breaking through and causing interior damage.

By having a wind mitigation inspection conducted, you can potentially:

  • Reduce your homeowners insurance premium: Insurance companies reward homes with wind mitigation features with lower premiums, reflecting a lower risk of wind damage.
