On January 13, 2023, the Florida legislature approved Chase Roofing, LLC as a contractor for the My Safe Florida Home program in Zephyrhills, FL. The program provides single-family homeowners with a free Wind Mitigation Home Inspection and a Wind Mitigation Grant to address any issues discovered during the inspection. With this program, Zephyrhills residents can work with approved contractors such as Chase Roofing to fortify their homes and withstand hurricanes as well as other high-wind events via construction methods, designs, and materials. Homeowners can also reduce their insurance premiums by participating in this program.
In 2022, the Florida legislature reauthorized the My Safe Florida Home program, which is funded by the State through the administration of free home inspections and the provision of grants. The legislature has also exempted home-hardening initiatives from taxation. Purchases of impact-resistant doors, impact-resistant windows, and impact-resistant garage doors are exempt from sales tax (6%) until June 30, 2024.
All owners of single-family, site-built homes are eligible to apply for a wind mitigation home inspection, but they are not required to do so. Program applications will be reviewed and approved in the order in which they are received until all available funds are exhausted.
To be eligible for the My Safe Florida Home program, applicants must provide evidence of their homestead exemption and proof that their home is insured for less than $500. In addition, they must be situated in an area susceptible to wind-borne debris and have received their initial building permit prior to January 1, 2008.
The DFS (Florida Department of Financial Services) expects to conduct between 140,000 and 145,000 initial Wind Mitigation Inspections for qualified homeowners. The inspections will identify elements of a home’s structure that could be enhanced to prevent future wind damage.
Homeowners who receive free inspections will be eligible to apply for grants to mitigate wind damage to their homes’ roofs, windows, and other components.
The DFS anticipates awarding between 11,000 and 12,000 Wind Mitigation Grants to fund the following projects:
Upgrades to Roof Coverings
Improvements to the Strength of Roof Deck Attachments
Roof-to-Wall Connections Reinforcements
Installations for Secondary Water Barriers for Roofs
Exterior Door Upgrades
Garage Door Upgrades
For every dollar approved homeowners spend on repairs or mitigation projects, they will receive two dollars in grant funds, up to a maximum of $10,000, provided the repairs are completed by an approved contractor. To qualify for the full grant, homeowners must invest $5,000 in the hurricane mitigation measures.
