Four Point Inspection

Four Point Inspection

A “4-Point Inspection” focuses only on four main areas of interest in a home: HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) Electrical wiring and panels. Plumbing connections and fixtures.
4-Point Inspection is often a required Inspection in order to obtain (or maintain) insurance coverage when the home is 30 years or older. The inspection requirements were designed by insurance companies in order to get a better understanding of the structure they are insuring and to know the home has been well maintained, and the major systems are in good working condition.

This inspection must be conducted by a professional who has obtained a Florida-specific license. BetterView Home Inspections is certified to preform 4-Point Inspections and will handle all of the 4-Point insurance inspection paperwork so you don’t have to.
It is important to remember that this is a limited visual inspection and does not replace the home inspection.
