Haag Certified Inspector – Wind Damage description
The Haag Certified Inspector-Wind Damage (HCI-W) program will provide you with the perspective and best practices you need to inspect an entire building system for damage after a wind event. You will gain an in-depth understanding of numerous types of building systems in order to understand how each is affected by wind, including roofing, siding, exterior envelope systems, supporting structures, and foundations. The course also covers an in-depth study of how wind forms and the characteristics of different types of wind events, providing a detailed explanation of their varying effects. You will learn how to distinguish conditions caused by wind from conditions caused by other factors (including wave action, foundation settlement, and/or mechanical contact). HCI-W includes tips regarding how to perform an inspection following a wind event, as well as how to support and document your conclusions.
