Adding hurricane straps to every truss will increase the uplift to 1000 pounds per square foot and make your home stronger during a high wind situation (See Strong Tie Load Table). Once the job is completed, your current insurance carrier will give you a discount on your current premium. Some Florida Retrofits customers have received a larger discount than the total job cost! If you own a home, you cannot put a price on protecting your family and assets inside. Also being able to save on your insurance, for commercial and residential property owners, just makes a smart decision easier. Even better is that the year after that you get another discount from this clip credit. Many of Florida Retrofits customers actually profit from adding hurricane straps or hurricane clips and making their property safer. If you own a home, you cannot put a price on protecting your family inside. When your insurance gives you a lower rate for the roof to wall credit it makes a good decision even easier.
Florida home and property insurance policies have mitigation discounts for hurricane straps or hurricane clips, also known as the roof to wall connection discount. If you are not currently receiving this discount or are not sure, please contact us and we will perform a free evaluation. In order to receive mitigation discounts, a home must have certain features which Florida Retrofits can add for you.
Florida Retrofits has helped over 250 property owners save money on their insurance premiums. We know the rules required to get you the mitigation discounts you need and the experience regarding all the wind mitigation forms.

Roof to wall connections attach the load bearing walls to the roof structure; which provide significant insurance savings in Florida.
Hurricane Straps and clips facilitate strong joints for the structure of your property and can also help you save on your insurance premiums.
Roofing material is attached to the roof deck. The better the roof deck is attached to the property, the more likely it is to stay on in high winds.
