Wind Mitigation History
The Wind Mitigation program was created by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation requiring every insurance carrier to accept a standardized Wind Mitigation Form regardless of which insurance company homeowners are working to. A Wind Mitigation Inspection checks to see how well your home should withstand a wind event. Every Wind Mitigation Form must be complete by a certified professional licensed by the State of Florida. The Wind Mitigation Form is required to include color photos to verify every wind mitigation device installed as part of the completed Wind Mitigation Certificate. The final document certifies the presence and proper installation of each and every wind mitigation device in the home. Florida has the highest insurance rates in the nation. Florida Law requires insurance companies, including Citizens Insurance, to provide discounts to qualifying applicants. Discounts can be as great as 60% in some cases. A wind mitigation inspection is typically the only way to receive these discounts.
