If so I suggest you call the numbers below. They have been trying to get me some answers and seem kind of surprised about the questions.
Florida office of insurance regulation
Office of the commissioner “McCarty”
I suggest anyone doing the wind mits call these numbers and tell them to go back to the other form.
Problems that come to mind for me are:
Do not bring up the pictures leave that alone for now. The form says visible items need pictures. I am not marking rafters and putting a ruler next to them and taking pictures. I suggest no one else does either. That whole method is crap and not accurate. If it is not visible no pictures . swr, wall type, nailing pattern etc…
Complain about how are we supposed to figure out what code the shutters are marked if they just say tested for large missile impact. that should be good enough.
Complain about the 4 nails in the rafters. I ask if it is a typo. Suggest they put a period after 3 nails. Just like the MSFH folks allowed.
I would love to hear any other things we should complain about because I have only done a few.
Suggest they bring back the old form. It sucks and has problems also like the nails in the rafters but it is better than this.
My opinion is only the person who does the inspection should be able to fill out the form. You all can tell them who you think that should be. that keeps the money in the persons pocket who does it. and keeps out the bigger companies from signing off on idiots work.
I am up for anything just CALL CALL CALL CALL CALL. I called the commissioner directly.
I also suggest you post this or you own version of this anywhere on any board from any organization that has people doing wind mits.
If this seems like a good Idea to all we should ask all InterNACHI members who have free long distance to help. It would give them something to do will driving to the next job.
I can tell you from personal experience they have no Idea of how bad it is and if everybody calls as much as they can then they Will get the message. Lets do something about this instead of just complaining amongst ourselves.
Please leave useful ideas.
Please keep the stupid a s s comments out of this thread.
Lets do this for each other.
