Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does The Wind Mitigation Inspection Cost?

In Tampa FL, wind mitigation inspection prices can vary by company. Most reputable home inspection companies will charge around $100-$200 for a wind mitigation inspection. See our pricing.

How Much Money Will I Save On My Home Insurance?

Estimated savings on home insurance can vary significantly depending on the home. It is best to discuss with your insurance agent what discounts you might qualify for and your estimated savings. Home inspectors can only tell you what your home has, not home much you might save.

How Long Does The Inspection Take?

The wind mitigation inspection can take about 30 minutes to an hour. A home inspector will need to walk around your property, crawl into the attic, and look at all your openings.

Why Did I Lose Insurance Credits?

In rare instances, homeowners may lose insurance discounts. This happens because a previous wind mitigation inspection was filled out improperly, meaning a previous inspector marked certain home attributes that were not there. Fortunately, these cases are rare and most homeowners end up saving every year on their insurance premium.
