My Safe Florida Home Wind Inspections

Gulf Coast Associates posted this 2 7,558 Views

With Hurricane Dean heading into the southern Gulf of Mexico, we thought it might be a good time to remind Florida residents of the state sponsored My Safe Florida Homes free wind inspection program. Floridians can learn how safe their homes are now, what they can do to strengthen their homes, and find out if they are eligible for savings on their hurricane insurance premiums. In addition, homeowners who receive an inspection through the program may be eligible for matching grants up to $5...
