What is a Four Point (4-Point) Home Inspection?
A four point (4-Point) home inspection generally includes but is not limited to a visual inspection of the roof system, electrical system, plumbing system and the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. The different systems in your home have a varying but somewhat predictable life span. Most of the information gathered for a four point inspection pertains to just that. However, the information is not limited to the life expectancy of the systems. Also, considered are issues such as type of wiring used in the home, the type of plumbing used and its condition, and identification of the manufacturers of the products. We also look for signs of equipment or system failures that may be safety related. Our report will provide the specific information you need about the deficiencies that require repair so that you can get the insurance coverage you need.
What a Four Point (4-Point) Inspection Is not!
A four point home inspection is not a pre-purchase/pre-sale home inspection, which is much more comprehensive in nature. The four point home inspection only satisfies insurance carrier requirements of particular home systems and lacks the necessary information for you to make a completely informed decision about buying a home or its condition for selling. Ask about our discounted prices for combining such inspections.
It also is not a guarantee that the insurance carrier will qualify you, that the home is insurable, that the carrier will require no other certifications or inspections, or that you won’t be required to have work performed after the four point inspection. All In The Family Home Inspections, LLC. is an independent home inspection company and does not work for or have any control over any insurance company.
