How long does it take for a four point inspection?
Tuesday, April 7, 2020
A four point inspection usually takes 30 to 40 minutes on site, and covers the four main components of a house: roof, electrical, plumbing, and heating/air-conditioning. Its purpose is to give an insurance company a clear picture of the condition of a home, particularly any older components, as they relate to the possibility of any future claims. A leaking roof, ancient water heater, and unsafe electrical wiring are examples of things that will cause a home to fail a four point inspection. This inspection is now required by insurors in Florida for any home over 30 years old.
