Protect what’s Priceless

Insurance may help put the structure back together, but there is so much more that makes a house a home and a family part of a community.

Retrofitting your home to FORTIFIED standards not only reduces your insurance costs, it reduces potential out-of-pocket costs associated with your windstorm deductible.

"For the record, Darius was great with my client and clearly has a high level of expertise and knowledge. It's just a shame that his company wasn't sent to do the job in the first place as it would have saved both organizations time and money. I sincerely hope that Darius company is called upon with any or our future risks whenever possible.”
VP Underwriting New York, NY
“Thanks Darius!!! We are going to discuss the information you sent over yesterday and about the possibility of creating a form with inspection process with you guys to substantiate giving the 2006 IRC credit in AL and MS.”
E&S VP Mitigation and Underwriting Ft Lauderdale, FL
“Darius, this is an example of the poor quality of the Wind Mit forms we receive form other iInspection Companies.

“I spoke with the underwriter on this and she said only 11 pages were received. That is why she asked for the diagram as it was not scanned by the agent’s office or a transmission problem. Anyway we have the information from your report. I informed her that your reports are excellent and check with the agent to make sure all documents are scanned.”
VP Underwriting Sarasota, FL
