Homeowner’s insurance is a vital way to ensure you aren’t at a loss for covering the cost of repairs should a storm or other event cause extreme damage to your home. Major home repairs are often extremely expensive, and homeowner’s insurance can help mitigate that cost. It is also beneficial if you lose your home entirely due to a disaster. For some insurance carriers, offering a policy may only be done if they believe your home is worth insuring (that repairs won’t cost more than your home). In order to show this, you may be asked to have a 4-Point Inspection done to verify the age and condition of major components to your home
What’s Inspected In A 4-Point
A 4-Point Inspection, or an insurance inspection, differs from a traditional home inspection. This type of inspection only looks at four key components of your home:
- The Roof
- The HVAC System
- The Plumbing
- The Electrical System
Why just the four parts? These are typically the most expensive things to repair and often are the cause for a homeowner’s insurance claim. For example, a problem with the home’s wiring could lead to a house fire or a failure of the plumbing or HVAC system could lead to water damage and mold growth. By requesting a 4-Point insurance inspection, your carrier can perform a risk assessment for your home and decide whether or not to provide homeowner’s coverage.
