Can you believe we are here again…”Hurricane Season”. According to tonights newscast it begins in June and we all are very familiar with the anxiety we all suffer until it ends.
Word is getting around about a way of cutting windstorm insurance premiums. You necessarily won’t have to change a thing, and you can save thousands of dollars.
The answer: A Windstorm Mitigation Inspection
By meeting the protection criteria of the F.W.U.A (Florida Windstorm Underwriters Association), Insurance companies will reduce your property insurance premiums accordingly. But to qualify, it’s up to you to contact your insurance carrier and request the inspection. Call your local insurance agent and they will provide you with a list of local inspectors that are approved by your insurance carrier to perform the inspection.
The requirement from state regulators to offer discounts apply to all residential windstorm policies, condo association policies however, are not. Many homeowners are not aware their homes have what it takes to receive these discounts… and surely Insurance companies are not going to go out of their way to tell you! So call tomorrow…and try to get through the season with a little less worry and a lot more money in your pocket.
