A wind mitigation report is a document assesses the structural integrity and features of a building to determine its ability to withstand wind-related damages, such as those caused by hurricanes or strong storms. The purpose of the report is to evaluate the construction methods and materials used in the building’s construction, as well as any additional protective measures in place, to identify features that can reduce the risk of wind damage.

Typically, a wind mitigation report takes into account various factors, including the roof shape, roof covering, roof-to-wall connections, door and window protections, and the presence of a secondary water resistance barrier. If a building has features that enhance its wind resistance, it may qualify for insurance discounts or credits.

The need for a wind mitigation report often arises when homeowners are seeking homeowners insurance. Many insurance companies offer discounts to homeowners who have taken steps to fortify their homes against wind damage. In regions prone to hurricanes or strong winds, obtaining a wind mitigation report and implementing recommended improvements can result in cost savings on insurance premiums.

It’s important to check with your insurance provider to understand their specific requirements and whether obtaining a wind mitigation report would be beneficial in terms of insurance discounts or credits in your area.
