Wind Mitigation

High winds are prone to cause substantial damage to homes. Wind mitigation is one way you can prepare your home to withstand high winds.

Wind mitigation features can significantly reduce your risk. A wind mitigation inspection can be completed by a Florida licensed inspector that could apply discounts to your insurance policy.

Wind mitigation features reviewed in an inspection:

  • Roofing materials and coverings that are rated to resist high winds and water intrusion
  • Attachments for walls and roofs that are specially designed to prevent the roof from being blown off by severe winds
  • Roof and building shapes that are more resistant to high winds
  • Doors and windows designed to withstand wind pressure and projectiles
  • Storm shutters or panels that protect your windows and other openings from wind, rain, and projectiles


Please contact your insurance agent for their wind mitigation recommendations and to learn more about how wind mitigation can impact your policy.
