About This Deal
4 Point Home Inspection
FOUR POINTS INSPECTION:

For each of the 4 items, the inspection is limited to the visible parts of each system. These systems are:
The Visible HVAC System (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning).
Visible Roof System.
Visible Plumbing System.
Visible Electrical System.

Wind Mitigation Inspections
Wind mitigation inspections look for construction features that have been shown to reduce losses in hurricanes. The factors found during the inspection that help determine a home’s stability are:
The age of the home: to determine what building code was in place at the time of construction.
The age of the roof.
The documentation to prove if the roof was installed to any certain building code.
The types of roofing materials.
The roof deck attachment to truss/rafters.
The roof to wall connection such as toenails, clips, or straps, the shape of the roof which is hip, gable, etc.
The roof shape.
What wind mitigation Inspection ?
In Florida, a wind mitigation inspection is performed by a licensed general contractor, building contractor, architect, engineer, building inspector or home inspector. The information gathered is presented on a standard wind mitigation form, OIR-B1-1802, commonly referred to as the 1802 form. As of Feb 1, 2012, all inspections must have photos showing each feature listed on the wind mitigation form.
Wind Mitigation is where a certified inspector looks over a property for specific weather withstanding features. These features can be anything from door/window coverings to the way your roof is attached to your home and how your roof is sealed to prevent water from entering.
What is a 4 point inspection ?
A Four Point inspection is NOT a Home Inspection or a subset of a home inspection. This report provides specific information an insurance company needs in regard to four components of a home to determine if the home is insurable.
This is especially pertinent when insuring an older home. Older homes have had more time in which to have systems repaired or replaced or for things to potentially fall in to disrepair. Older homes also may have used construction techniques or materials that were normal at the time, but were subsequently phased out in favor of more modern practices. These are all things that are interesting and important for the insurance company to be aware of, since it helps them determine if the home is eligible for coverage under their underwriting policies.
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 4 particular home systems (Plumbing, Electrical, HVAC, Roof). A 4 point report ONLY reports on specific items for these systems that the insurance companies need to verify if the home is insurable. This report lacks the necessary information for you to make an informed decision in buying a home or its condition for selling, which is why we always suggest having a full home inspection completed in addition to a 4 point inspection.
