Why do I need a 4-Point inspection?
Older homes have tendencies to have more issues resulting from their age and years of wear and tear than newer homes. For example, an older home may have electrical wiring that is nearing the end of its safely usable life cycle. These things could cause potential liabilities to insurance companies issueing home owner’s insurance policies. Old and outdated wiring could fail while protected by the home owner’s insurance policy and the home owner may seek reimbursement through the claims process for damages to the home ir its contents. These same concerns apply to the heating and air conditioning, plumbing and especially the roof. If any of these primary elements in the home need to be updated or replaced or were installed incorrectly they could fail resulting in damage to the home that the insurance company would be liable to pay damages for.
A 4-Point inspection focuses in four main points of the home and the inspection report describes these elements and their conditions in detail.
- HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning)
- Electrical wiring and panels
- Plumbing connections and fixtures
