Wind Mitigation Inspection
A wind mitigation inspection is done for clients wishing to lower homeowner’s insurance costs.

The inspection report strictly follows the Uniform Mitigation Verification Inspection Form that is required by the State of Florida.
Mr. Presto will pull historical building permits and documents in order to determine what building code the home was constructed under.

Within 24 hours after the inspection, a detailed electronic report with supporting documentation and photos is generated and emailed to the client, as well as the insurance agent.
