Wind Mitigation Inspection

Florida Wind Mitigation Company

Wind Mitigation Inspection

“Wind Mitigation” is the buzzword in Florida that refers to building materials, techniques and tools used to reduce the damage from a major hurricane.

Following Hurricane Andrew in 1992, The Florida Legislature required each homeowner’s insurance carrier in Florida to offer its customers discounts for implementing these measures, as a way of encouraging Floridians to take preventive measures and increase the safety of their homes.
