WHAT GETS INSPECTED?
The inspector reviews the strength of the building against hurricane force winds and impact by flying projectiles. Many older Florida homes are unprotected against hurricane force winds.
The inspector will look at the year the house is built and the age of the roof. He or she will also look up in the attic to see if there are hurricane straps or clips installed – these secure the roof trusses to the walls and hold the roof on against the uplift pressure of a hurricane. The inspector will also determine the type and spacing of the nails used to hold the decking to the trusses. Lastly, the inspector will also look at the windows, doors and garage doors to determine their level of strength.
The stronger the better!
