Free Wind Inspections might save on Homeowner's Insurance
Potential Savings on Your Homeowner's Insurance…ACT NOW deadline extended to July 31st!
Recently in the media, there have been talks about the My Safe Florida Home free wind inspections. What the inspection offers is a free wind inspection for any Floridian whose residence is a single-family, detached, site built home. Unfortunately mobile homes, manufactured homes, apartments, condominiums, multi-family dwellings and businesses are not eligible for the free inspection but you may schedule one at a cost of $150.00. The legislature's goal of scheduling 400,000 free wind inspections by early August is on schedule to be met. New applications are still being accepted for the free wind inspections and are offered on a first come first serve basis. You can apply over the phone at 866-513-6734 or online by following the link at www.mysafeflorida.com. One of the benefits of receiving a free wind inspection through this program is identifying the potential insurance savings available to you based on the CURRENT structure of your home.
The law requires that the inspection report must comply with the following:
- Outline improvements that may be made to your home to increase resistance to hurricane wind damage
- Provide an estimate of how much each improvement would cost to complete
- Provide an estimate of insurance discounts that may be available (if you provide insurance information at the time you apply)
- Offer a hurricane resistance rating that shows the home's current ability, and future ability with improvements, to withstand hurricanes
