How long does it take for a wind mitigation inspection?
Tuesday, April 7, 2020
A wind mitigation inspection usually takes about 30 minutes on site, but may require up to an hour if documentation of windows and shutters has to be reviewed. There are seven different hurricane-resistant construction details of a home that the inspector looks for in a wind mitigation inspection (Form OIR-B1-1802). Each one provides a discount on the windstorm part of your homeowner’s insurace. Few homes have all of them, but most have at least a few. For more details, go to our blog post What is checked during a wind mitigation inspection?
Because the inspector needs to climb into the attic as part of the inspection, it will go faster if you clear an area under the attic access hatch to place a ladder and remove any stored items in the attic around the access opening.
