A four-point inspection is a limited scope evaluation performed for insurance companies, which documents the age and general condition of the roof, (as in this diagram). Plumbing, Electrical and HVAC systems are also checked. It is not intended to replace a Standard Home Inspection.
Buying a home for the first time is an education. Let our experienced home inspectors show you both visually and in a written narrative what some of the pitfalls are to help you avoid costly unexpected expenses.
A Standard Home Inspection is usually suggested to New Home Buyers and People who are selling their homes and want to know ahead of time if their are potential problems that would put off a Buyer interested the purchasing the property.
A Condo, Villa or Townhouse Inspection, is unlike a Standard Home inspection, which looks at the Exterior and Interior of the subject. The Condo inspection looks at the Interior Structure, HVAC, Plumbing, and Electrical systems along with the Built-in Appliances. A full report as with a Home Inspection is completed for the Customer.
Appliances such as Hot Water Heaters, Dishwashers, Refrigerators, Microwave, Garbage Disposals and so forth are all checked for normal operation. If the appliances are not operating correctly, their condition will be noted in the report.
One of the most important parts of any home inspection is the foundation. Poor foundations usually cause drainage, moisture, or structural problems, which are very expensive to remedy.
When the weather is dry, this moisture condition usually will be overlooked. This type of problem can only be seen with wet marks on the ceiling, and if there are no marks, only with infrared technology or moisture meters.
This structural crack could have severe ramifications throughout the rest of the house.
