What’s the Point of a Four-Point Inspection?

Do you need a four point inspection

When a homeowner is looking to satisfy the insurance requirements when they are looking at a home owner’s insurance policy, a four point home inspection is required to be carried out. A four-point inspection will cover the key areas of your home that are highly likely to be involved in any type of insurance claim. The insurance company will require a detailed report of the four selected areas to make sure that they are fully functioning and safe in order to give the insurance cover that they can offer.

The inspection would include taking into account the age, the state, or condition of parts and ensuring that they are all in working order. A Home insurance company would not be willing to insure a home that does not pass the inspection and is in poor condition from existing unrepaired damages.

An inspector would do a thorough walk-through and would be looking at the conditions of the property’s electric, roof condition, the AC, and water heater. A professional inspector will be looking for hazards that a home insurance company would not be looking to cover.

A professional company, like CFBI, will carry out a thorough four-point inspection as part of its home inspection services. With only fully licensed and professionally trained inspectors available, CFBI can make sure that your expectations and needs are met every single time they are asked. All inspectors will offer you a detailed report of any inspection carried out. The detailed report will highlight any problems and tell of the best way to go about getting it sorted.

Central Florida Building Inspectors understands the need to give all clients correct advice regarding repairs and replacements.  Giving the best advice and a detailed report can help in getting issues sorted in order for the best homeowners’ insurance policy to be given for that property.
