Home Inspector Insurance – Wind Mitigation Inspection Coverage

What is home inspector insurance for wind mitigation inspections? Home inspector e&o insurance and home inspector general liability insurance are mainly for home or building inspections. However some inspections involve inspecting the property for proper windstorm damage protection measures.

A windstorm inspection, also referred to as a “windstorm mitigation inspection”, windstorm insurance inspection or “Wind Mitigation Inspection”, is a kind of home inspection common in the coastal areas of the Southeastern United States. The purpose of a windstorm inspection is to determine the appropriateness of a given structure’s construction in the event of strong winds, such as those present in a hurricane.

Windstorm inspections look for construction features that have been shown to reduce losses in hurricanes, such as a hip roof, concrete block construction, the presence of gable end bracing, shutters and opening protections, the presence of roof to wall attachments such as toe nails, clips or hurricane straps, and the presence of a secondary water resistance barrier.

Many inspectors performing windstorm mitigation inspections carry home inspector insurance with wind mitigation inspection coverage. Our program offers home inspector e&o insurance with additional wind mitigation inspection coverage. The additional wind mitigation inspection coverage is added through an endorsement to the policy.
