Residential Home Inspection

Do not skip the inspection!

We Highly Recommend An Inspection With Any Property Purchase!

A home inspection performed by Four Corners Home Inspections is a non-invasive examination of a residential property, usually conducted by a qualified and licensed home inspector. The purpose of the inspection is to assess the overall condition of the home and identify any potential issues or defects. Home inspectors evaluate various components of the property, including but not limited to:

  1. Structural elements: Assessing the foundation, walls, roof, and other structural components for stability and integrity.

  2. Exterior: Examining the exterior features such as siding, windows, doors, and landscaping.

  3. Roofing: Checking the condition of the roof, including materials, flashing, and potential leaks.

  4. Plumbing: Evaluating the plumbing system, including pipes, fixtures, water heaters, and drainage.

  5. Electrical systems: Inspecting the electrical wiring, outlets, switches, and the main electrical panel.

  6. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning): Assessing the heating and cooling systems for functionality and safety.

  7. Interior: Examining the interior components such as walls, ceilings, floors, stairs, and built-in appliances.

  8. Insulation and ventilation: Checking the insulation in the attic and walls, as well as assessing ventilation systems.

  9. Appliances: Verifying the condition and functionality of included appliances.

After the inspection, the home inspector typically provides a detailed report to the client, outlining the findings and any recommended repairs or further evaluations. It's important to note that a home inspection is not a guarantee of the property's condition but serves as a valuable tool for informed decision-making during real estate transactions. Home inspection standards may vary by region and may be subject to updates, so it's advisable to consult the specific standards set by relevant authorities or associations in your area.

Florida Insurance Inspections

4 Point Inspection

In Florida, a 4-point inspection is a specialized examination of four key components in a residential property. Typically requested for insurance purposes, this inspection focuses on assessing the condition of the following four crucial areas:

  1. Roof: The inspector evaluates the age, condition, and remaining life of the roof, looking for any signs of damage, leaks, or necessary repairs.

  2. Plumbing: The inspection includes an examination of the plumbing system, checking for any visible leaks, the condition of pipes, and the functionality of fixtures and water heaters.

  3. Electrical: Inspectors assess the electrical system, including the main electrical panel, wiring, and components, ensuring they meet safety standards and identifying any potential hazards.

  4. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning): The HVAC system is examined to determine its condition, age, and operational efficiency, ensuring that it complies with safety and insurance requirements.

Insurance companies often request 4-point inspections to evaluate the risk associated with insuring an older home or a property with potential issues in these critical areas. Homeowners may need to provide the inspection report to their insurance provider to obtain or renew coverage. It's important to note that 4-point inspections are distinct from comprehensive home inspections, which cover a broader range of components in a property.

Wind Mitigation Inspection

In Florida, a Wind Mitigation Inspection is a specialized assessment conducted on residential properties to evaluate their vulnerability to wind damage caused by hurricanes or severe storms. This inspection is often carried out for the purpose of obtaining insurance discounts on homeowners' insurance policies.

During a Wind Mitigation Inspection, a qualified inspector examines various features of the home that can impact its ability to withstand wind forces. Key components assessed may include:

  1. Roof Covering: The type of roof covering material and its resistance to wind uplift.

  2. Roof Deck Attachment: The method used to secure the roof deck to the underlying structure.

  3. Roof-to-Wall Connections: The strength and integrity of the connections between the roof framing and the supporting walls.

  4. Roof Geometry: The shape and design of the roof, as certain styles may be more resistant to wind damage.

  5. Opening Protection: The presence of protective measures for windows and doors, such as impact-resistant glass or hurricane shutters.

By identifying and documenting these factors, the Wind Mitigation Inspection helps insurance companies assess the level of risk associated with a particular property. Homeowners who invest in wind-resistant features may qualify for insurance discounts based on the findings of the inspection, as their homes are considered less prone to wind damage. This inspection is especially relevant in regions prone to hurricanes and strong wind events, such as Florida.

Roof Certification Inspection

A Four Corners Roof Certification Inspection is an examination conducted by a our Certified Master Inspector to assess the condition and integrity of a property's roof. This type of inspection is often requested by homeowners, buyers, or insurance companies to determine the roof's current state, potential lifespan, and whether any repairs or replacements are needed.

During a Roof Certification Inspection, inspectors typically evaluate various aspects of the roof, including:

  1. Material Condition: Assessing the condition of the roofing material, whether it's shingles, tiles, metal, or another type.

  2. Structural Integrity: Checking for signs of structural damage, such as sagging or compromised supports.

  3. Flashing and Seals: Examining the condition of flashing around chimneys, vents, and other roof penetrations, as well as checking for proper seals to prevent water intrusion.

  4. Gutters and Drainage: Verifying the functionality of gutters and downspouts to ensure proper water drainage away from the roof.

  5. Overall Wear and Tear: Identifying any visible signs of wear, damage, or aging that might affect the roof's performance.

A Roof Certification Inspection by Four Corners Home Inspections provides a snapshot of the roof's current condition at the time of the inspection. The resulting certification may be used for insurance purposes, real estate transactions, or as documentation for homeowners seeking to understand the status of their roof. It's important to note that a roof certification does not guarantee future performance but offers insights into the roof's condition at a specific point in time.
