About Building Inspections
Wind Inspections, LLC was formed in February of 2008 to provide Wind Mitigation Inspections for Florida homeowners. We have continued to grow by expanding our service offerings to include full Home Inspections, 4-Point Inspections, and Roof Certifications. In early 2010, we changed our name to Building Inspections, LLC to better describe our company's line of inspection services.
We remain committed to servicing homeowner's and agents in the area of wind mitigation per the Florida Statutes. According to the statutes, insurance companies are required to offer Florida homeowners "discounts or credits" for construction techniques that reduce damage and loss in windstorms. These discounts which became effective in 2003, can save you up to 40% on your windstorm insurance and can be obtained by having a mitigation inspection performed on your home.
Wind mitigation discounts are justified because stronger, more wind-resistant houses have lower windstorm losses. Lower windstorm losses equal reduced costs for the insurance companies that are then passed on to the consumers. Over 90% of existing homes have one or more of the wind resistive construction features and may qualify for some insurance discounts. In addition, houses built after 1994 in Miami-Dade or Broward Counties and homes built after 2002 in the rest of the state generally have many wind resistive construction features and will likely qualify for significant credits. An insurance mitigation inspection can be performed to learn what features of your home may qualify for discounts. For exact quotes or discounts, you must contact your insurance agent or the individual insurance company in question.
