Wind Mitigation Inspection Sarasota

Alpha Home Inspection Services will provide you quick and competent wind-mitigation inspections. Wind mitigation inspections are performed to assess a home’s roof system and its potential ability to withstand being damaged during high-wind events like those experienced during tropical storms and hurricanes.

The wind mitigation inspection includes assessing, determining, and reporting the following:

  1. Permitting Jurisdiction:  The historical permits can be reviewed to determine any roof-related work that has been done in the past as well as the requirements of the roof construction when it was built.
  2. Construction Year:  The year the home was built.  This helps the inspector know what to expect for many facets of the inspection.
  3. Roof shape:  The roof shape will be determined as each style has different concerns during high-wind events.
  4. Roof Covering:  The type of roof covering (shingle, tile, etc.), its condition and the age of the roof in question will be determined.
  5. Secondary Water Resistance:  We will determine if an SWR has been applied as a secondary means of keeping water out.
  6. Roof Decking:  The material used for the roof decking will be determined and how that decking is attached to the roof structure (trusses or rafters)
  7. Roof To Wall Attachment:  The method used to attach the roof structure to the structural walls will also be determined and documented.
  8. Opening Protections:  We will also determine the protection that you have for the openings in the home.  These include windows, doors, and the garage door.  Glass may be impact-rated glass, or may rely on mounting physical protection over the openings.  This will be determined and documented during the wind mitigation inspection.
