Wind Mitigation Verification Inspection
Why do I need a wind Mitigation Inspection?
Saving money on your home owner’s insurance can only be a good thing. That is why it is important you give your insurance company an up-to-date Wind Mitigation Verification Inspection report.
A Wind Mitigation or “Wind Mit” shows your insurance company how your home is built to withstand the forces of hurricane strength winds and wind-borne debris. Having an up-to-date Wind Mit on file with your insurance company can save you hundreds of dollars in premium costs.
Wind Mits are valid for five years, after which your premium can increase without warning. It is recommended that you have a Wind Mitigation Verification Inspection performed prior to obtaining home insurance, after upgrading to impact rated doors or windows or after your roof has been replaced.
A Wind Mitigation Inspection includes:
- Building Code: Confirmation that the structure was built in accordance with Florida Building code regulations.
- Roof Inspection:
- Roof Covering
- Roof Deck Attachment
- Roof to Wall Attachment
- Roof Geometry
- Secondary Water Barrier: This is also referred to as “peel n’ stick” underlayment adhered directly to the roof sheathing
- Opening Protection: Such as hurricane panels or impact rated glazing
Four Point Insurance Inspection
Typically homes 30 years and older will require a Four Point Inspection. Some insurance companies will require the completion of a Four Point regardless of the age of the home.
A Four Point Inspection is not as in-depth or detailed as a full general home inspection. Insurance companies are only concerned with the four major systems:
HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning)
HUD Compliance Certification / Permanent Foundation Certifications
When do I need a HUD Compliance Certification?
Manufactured Homes are built from 1976 and on when the HUD standards became effective. The HUD standards improved the quality, safety, and energy efficiency of the homes. The most recent HUD standards are dated September 1996.
A manufactured home (formerly known as a mobile home) is built to the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards (HUD Code) and displays a red certification label on the exterior of each transportable section. Manufactured homes are built in the controlled environment of a manufacturing plant and are transported in one or more sections on a permanent chassis.
Manufactured homes have exterior certification labels and an interior data plate where Mobile and Modular homes do not.
A HUD engineering foundation inspection is:
To conduct a structural inspection for determining:
If the MFD home is permanently tied down, and
That the home would not float off the piers or foundation,
That the drainage of the house will not flood the crawlspace or basement.
