Windstorm Insurance Inspections

(December 2016)

Coastal County Residents

Before doing any construction in the areas listed below, please contact your insurance agent about the Windstorm Inspections Program in order to obtain or maintain windstorm and hail insurance through the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA).

Coastal Counties Affected:

  • Aransas
  • Brazoria
  • Calhoun
  • Cameron
  • Chambers
  • Galveston
  • Jefferson
  • Kenedy
  • Kleberg

  • Willacy

Harris County Areas Affected (east of Highway 146):

  • La Porte
  • Morgan’s Point

  • Seabrook
  • Shore Acres

Windstorm insurance inspections under this program must be conducted by a Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) inspector or an engineer appointed by the commissioner of insurance.

Important: TDI inspectors are unable to inspect a property after construction is completed. Therefore, all inspections must be made during the construction phase.

The following projects typically require an inspection for windstorm insurance purposes:

  • New Structures
  • Re-roofs
  • Additions
  • Repairs
  • Alterations
  • A/C Mechanical

If you have any questions or need additional information, please visit us online at www.tdi.texas.gov/wind or call the Windstorm Inspections Program at 1-800-248-6032. (This number also announces hours of operation and any office closures.)
