Windstorm construction features protect your home from catastrophic damage by strengthening your home ability to withstand the uplift, shear and lateral forces associated with a hurricane to the exterior shell of your building.
The features enhance the vulnerable components of your home protective shell or envelope by fortifying your roof, exterior walls, windows and doors so they will not breach or fail.
If this envelope is breached, rain and debris can enter your home causing considerable damage to its interior and exert pressure on your walls and roof can lead to catastrophic damage to your property.
Insurance companies are enforced to provide insurance discounts for homes that have hurricane constructions that reduce the losses in a hurricane event.
Discounts are required to be submitted for damage reduction.
The discounts are justified because stronger, more hurricane-resistive houses with the right technique have lower windstorm losses, and lower hurricane losses mean reduced costs to insurance companies.
The insurance discounts provide some financial incentives for homeowners to strengthen their existing homes with the right technique and for new construction with the strongest options in the Building Code (FBC).
The insurance rate discounts in Florida began to take place in 2003. They apply to both existing construction (houses built prior to 2002) and new construction built to the new statewide FBC.
