Gainesville Wind Mitigation Inspection
A wind mitigation inspection is an extremely thorough examination regarding the safety of a home during storms or hurricanes. Our certified Gainesville home inspector will examine your home for determining its ability to withstand heaving winds.
Unfortunately, as of 2018 wind mitigation inspections are not required in Gainesville FL but are highly recommended.
During the rainy season heavy rain and strong winds can damage your home. It’s not uncommon for water to enter your home through vents, tiny gaps, cracks or windows & doors. Water entering your home can cause mold and other harmful health conditions to arise. Strong enough winds can cause your roof to completely detach.
A wind mitigation report include information about your home’s characteristics and suggestions on how to minimize the amount of expected damages during hurricane season. This report is mainly for home improvement. If you want to protect yourself from property damages it is best to schedule a wind-mitigation inspection ASAP.
