The Villages Roofs and Wind Mitigation Study


Wind Mitigation Roof Inspection

A wind mitigation study is a home inspection that assesses the home's ability to withstand high winds, such as those associated with hurricanes and tornadoes. The inspector will look at features such as the roof type and construction, roof-to-wall attachments, window and door coverings, and secondary water resistance.

Wind mitigation studies can help homeowners save money on their homeowner's insurance. In Florida, insurance companies are required to offer discounts for homes that have certain wind-resistant features. The amount of the discount can vary depending on the insurance company and the specific features of the home, but it can be significant.

There are several reasons why it is a good idea to have a wind mitigation study done before buying or selling a home in The Villages, FL:

  • To save money on homeowners insurance. As mentioned above, insurance companies offer discounts for homes with wind-resistant features. A wind mitigation study can help you identify any features that your home may be missing, so you can make necessary repairs or upgrades to qualify for the discounts.

  • To improve the value of your home. A home with wind-resistant features is more attractive to buyers and may sell for a higher price. A wind mitigation study can be used as documentation of the home's wind-resistance, which can give buyers peace of mind and help you sell your home more quickly.

  • To make your home safer. High winds can cause significant damage to homes, and can even be deadly. A wind mitigation study can help you identify any weaknesses in your home's construction that could make it more vulnerable to wind damage. By addressing these weaknesses, you can make your home safer for yourself and your family.

To have a wind mitigation study done, you will need to contact Sunbird Home Inspections. The inspector will schedule a time to visit your home and perform the Wind Mitigation inspection. Once the inspection is complete, the inspector will provide you with a report that details the results of the inspection and identifies any areas where your home could be improved.

If you are considering buying or selling a home in The Villages, FL, I highly recommend having a wind mitigation study done. It is a relatively inexpensive investment that can save you money on homeowners insurance, improve the value of your home, and make your home safer.
