There’s quite a bit of “less than ethical” Wind Mit inspections going on in Florida - from my viewpoint anyways. Since our insurance industry in Florida is in turmoil, there is a tremendous amount of clients requesting wind mits and four points and people are upset.
The picture is of a wind mit done this morning (the strap does not wrap over the top to the other side). I let the client know this will be classifies as a toe nail according to the form and that he may want to have the third nail added as there are several companies in the area that do a great job of it and it would probably be worth the investment to get the discount. He then produced 2 different reports with very similar pictures but classified them as 3 nails assuming the third nail was was at the top of the truss. He’s been getting the discount for years.
I told him I was sorry but I can’t include “unseen” nails.
FYI - the same company had issued both inspections previously but with different inspectors. They also gave it the home top rating for opening protection even though 2 openings weren’t protected.
These “errors” just make it more difficult for those who want to do things correctly
