Four Point Inspections~ When should you have one?
Most Insurance companies require a Four Point Inspection if a home is 30 years old or older (sometimes 25 years and older depending on insurance companies).
What does the 4 Point Insurance Inspection Cover?
All 4 Point Inspections include a limited scope evaluation of the following four most specific systems and components:
- Roof –Verifies the condition of the roof, as well as the approximate year the roof might need to be replaced (remaining life of roof expectancy)
- Plumbing –what kind of piping (copper, plastic etc.) is being used, dates if the system has been upgraded, any leaks or flaws and information about the hot water heater
- Electrical System – What size of the main service, any dangerous wiring, dates of any upgrades, make of the electric panel, and if there is any aluminum wiring
- Heating and Air Conditioning –Installation date, approximate life of the unit, and if the system is functioning correctly
It is important to remember that this is a limited visual inspection and does not replace an home inspection. All potential HOME BUYERS SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE A FULL HOME INSPECTION!
