Four Point Inspections in Coral Springs & South Florida
When purchasing a home, a four-point inspection is sometimes a necessity in order to get a new homeowners insurance policy or to renew a policy that you already have. Insurance companies usually ask for a Four Point Report for homes that are 30 years old or more. Schedule your Four Point Inspection Coral Springs Today! The Four Point Inspection offers a limited scope evaluation of these four systems:
Heating – Air Conditioning
The four point inspection is performed in order to check the components, age, and overall condition of these four systems for the benefit of the insurance company. This type of inspection is different than a “general home inspection” which is more thorough in breadth and scope.
HVAC (Heat, Ventilation & Air Conditioning)
The inspection and report describes the condition and age of these elements.
Why do I need a four-point inspection?
On older homes in Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale and other parts of Florida, insurance companies are naturally more concerned about risk. For example, a home with a roof nearing the end of its reliable service life may fail while under the policy and the homeowner may make a claim on their insurance company for damages to the home or its contents. Similar concerns extend to the condition of the air conditioner, electrical and plumbing systems in an older home. If these elements are in poor condition, in need of being updated or replaced or were improperly installed, they may fail and cause a fire or water damage to a home. It is really important to know the age and condition of the roof as insurance companies have their own ideas of how long a roof should last and most want to see that it has at least 5 years life left in order to give you insurance coverage. We also recommend you get a Wind Mitigation Inspection which looks at many different aspects of the home to see how well it will withstand a hurricane and can give you big discounts on your wind insurance.
Can I Use My Home Inspection Report for this?
Insurance companies have very specific questions and reporting requirements so Four Point Inspections need to be completed separately and completed by a person qualified to do so. Our form satisfies most insurance companies.
