Hurricanes, tornadoes, waterspouts, and lightning strikes — there’s no shortage of extreme weather conditions in Florida. Meanwhile, licensed home inspectors like you know the importance and value of a windstorm inspection to safety preparedness for harsh weather events.
Today, we have something special for our Florida home inspectors. We’re delighted to offer you the Florida Wind Mitigation template in the ISN Report Writer! Otherwise known as the Uniform Mitigation Verification Inspection, it’s brand new and we’re excited for you to access this new tool during your home inspection visits (and be sure to check out this short video on the new template):
