Wind Mitigation

Professional Home Inspection Institute's Wind Mitigation Inspection course qualifies Florida Home Inspectors to perform Wind/Hurricane Mitigation Inspections and expand their business into this thriving field.

The Wind Mitigation Inspection course teaches wind mitigation inspections as they relate to the housing and construction industry.  Each lesson identifies a specific section of the inspection form and how to write up the report. Our course will thoroughly cover each of the seven sections of the Uniform Wind Mitigation Verification Inspection Form.

After completing the course, inspectors are fully prepared and qualified to start performing these inspections. This training is an easy way for inspectors to earn themselves extra income while saving home owners money on insurance, a win-win for all parties. 

Home Inspector Wind Mitigation Requirements
Home Inspectors that are licensed in Florida can sign the "Uniform Mitigation Verification Inspection Form," for insurance discount purposes, if they receive wind mitigation training approved by the state board. 

The required training must consist of at least 3 hours of hurricane mitigation training approved by the Construction Industry Licensing Board and includes hurricane mitigation techniques and compliance with the uniform mitigation verification form and completion of a proficiency exam.  

Why Are Wind Mitigation Reports Required or Requested
Wind mitigation reports are requested by clients for insurance discounts. If a homeowner's home has certain features that are designed to prevent/minimize damage during hurricanes, the homeowner may be eligible for insurance discounts on their homeowner's insurance policy.
