Check with your insurance agent to see if you need a 4Pt Insurance survey or a Wind Mitigation report and contact us now if you do!
There are two primary types of insurance reports which you may be asked for when you are getting insurance on your home. A 4 Point Insurance Report and a Wind Mitigation Report.
4 Point Insurance Report
If you are purchasing or own a home that is 30 years or older, it is likely that your Insurance company will request that you provide a 4 Point Insurance report. The report, which is not intended to be a Home Inspection or Property Condition report specifically addresses four key components in your home:
- Heating and Air Conditioning
- Electrical System
The intent of the report is to identify the age, condition and remaining life of these four systems in a home so that the insurance company can have a better idea of the insurability of the home.
Uniform Wind Mitigation Surveys or OIR Form 1802
In 2007 the Florida Legislature approved an amendment to§627.0629 (1) which stated “A rate filing for residential property insurance must include actuarially reasonable discounts, credits, or other rate differentials, or appropriate reductions in deductibles, for properties on which fixtures or construction techniques demonstrated to reduce the amount of loss in a windstorm have been installed or implemented.”
4D Building Solutions can perform a wind mitigation inspection so that you can save money on your homeowners insurance. It’s quite simple and in less than an hour you could be saving up to 86% on the wind portion of your homeowners insurance. This can also be known as hurricane, storm or windstorm portion of your insurance. Depending on where you are located and who your insurance provider is, the windstorm portion of your insurance can be nearly 70% of your total homeowners insurance policy.
A Wind Mitigation inspection can be performed as a part of a standard home inspection for a significant cost savings. If a home inspection is not needed, we will be happy to come out and gather the information to prepare the OIR-1802 or Wind Mitigation Survey.
Depending on how your home was constructed and it’s location, the potential savings on your insurance can be significant, and this savings is every year, not just one time!
4D Building Solutions can prepare either of these reports for you. They can be done as stand alone inspections or in conjunction with a Home Inspection at a significantly reduced price.
