Wind Mitigation Form Explained

Wind Mitigation Form OIR-B1-1802

When you live in Florida, especially South Florida counties Miami, Broward, and Palm Beach that are considered HVHZ(High-Velocity Hurricane Zone) areas. you will at some point discuss this type of inspection. Though many homeowners schedule an inspection as requested by the insurance company, I found in most cases the homeowner doesn’t have a great understanding of the inspection and what the inspector is checking. I wanted to share a video that was created in 2012 by RepairsHome101 that gives a good oversight of the form OIR-B1-1802. This is the standard form for wind mitigation inspections that are excepted by all insurance companies. Unlike 4 point inspections, this form does not have variations.
