    Do I Need Hurricane Strap Mitigation/ Retrofit?

     

    The only way to determine if your home needs hurricane strap retrofits in Fort Myers is to have your home inspected by a licensed inspector. They will inspect your home and prepare a Wind Mitigation Inspection Report (OIR-B1-1802). If your home was built prior to 2000, there is good chance that your home needs mitigation and reinforcing. Homes built before 2000 were constructed under the previous Florida Building Code that did not require a specific number of nails to be installed into your truss straps. Additionally, if you have a wind inspection dated prior to January 2012, your report is outdated. An updated inspection is required by your insurance carrier to qualify for additional savings on your insurance premium.

     

    We can refer you to a Home Inspector near you to help you find out of your home can benefit from our mitigation and retrofitting services, and to learn more about wind mitigation inspection cost.

     

    What Is Wind Mitigation Inspection?

     

    Wind Mitigation Inspection is an inspection where a certified inspector comes to your home and looks for key features and add-ons that will reduce the amount of damage your home might suffer in the event of a hurricane or strong windstorm. Following the inspection, the inspector prepares a 4-page report, Form OIR-B1-1802. This form, when give to your insurance company, determines if your home is eligible for additional discounts on your insurance premium.  For example, if, on Page 2 of this report, Roof to Wall Attachment, “Toenail" is checked, you are spending too much for your coverage. The usual time it takes to recoup your investment for the 3rd Nail Mitigation is 9 to 12 months. Thereafter, you enjoy your insurance savings each year. The typical price range for a Wind Mitigation Inspection by a Licensed Inspector is $85 - $125.
