There are several factors you should consider when deciding to have a Wind Mitigation Inspection. Will the insurance plan I have qualify for a discount? Is wind related damage insured? How can I secure my property during windstorms and wind related natural disasters? These questions should be answered by either your homeowner’s insurance company or agent.
A Wind Mitigation Inspector provides a LA state approved report on the wind resistant features of your home. We then complete the form in a timely manner and submit it to your insurance company. Your home may qualify for a discount on the windstorm insurance policy, based on the information in the report.
The cost for a wind mitigation inspection ranges from $150-$250, and if you have not had an inspection yet, you might be paying too much for your current coverage. Some states have reported that homeowners had overpaid up to 22% before having their home inspected by a wind mitigation inspector.
