These discounts are given to homeowners who have wind-resistance features on their property. These features reduce the risk of damage that may occur during a hurricane or heavy windstorm. This translates into less risk for the insurance company which means savings passed on to the homeowner.

  • How the roof decking is attached to the trusses/rafters
