Storm Shutters Reguired on Coastal Homes Valued at $750,000.

October 24, 2008

Beginning January, Citizens Property Insurance Corp will require all single family homes with values of $750,000 or more which are located in high-risk coastal areas known WBDRs or Wind Borne Debris Regions to have storm shutter protection that meets the current codes. This requirement is to be without regard for the age of the structure. It will effect only those properties with structures valued at $750,000 or more. With most coastal properties values being mainly based on the land this requirement will effect less home owners than one would imagine. Those property owners who will be forced to upgrade their storm protection will find some solace in the reduced premiums they may receive after the required upgrades are completed.
