4-Point Inspection

Many people choose to hire an independent inspector rather than handle the process themselves because it is complicated and time-consuming. However, most people understand the necessity of this step only after they’ve suffered the consequences of skipping it. A 4-point inspection can reveal hidden issues with your potential home that you would otherwise be blind to, but that doesn’t mean you should skip it yourself if you do end up taking on this responsibility yourself!

The four most important things that will be looked at during the inspection are heating, plumbing, electrical, and foundation. Below, we’ll go into detail about these issues and how they affect your home.

What Does A 4-Point Inspection Cover?

  • HVAC 

An HVAC inspection will let you know whether your heating and cooling systems are in good working order. If not, repairs or replacements may be necessary to get them up to code.

  • Electrical

The electrical system of a house is usually one of its biggest safety issues. For example, you might not know if an outlet has been tampered with or if any wiring has been damaged by water. A home inspector will check everything from outlets to light fixtures to ensure your house is safe and reliable. He’ll also be able to tell you how old your wiring is, which helps figure out how much it could cost to repair or replace later on.

  • Plumbing

It’s always a good idea to keep an eye on your plumbing and preventative maintenance. You can do that with regular checkups from professional plumbers. They’ll also help you figure out if there are any issues as soon as they arise so you can fix them before they become more serious problems.

  • Roofing

Your home’s roof is one of its most critical components, sheltering you from rain and snow, helping to insulate your home in winter and keep it cool in summer. So how do you know whether your roof is in good shape? That’s where a 4-point inspection comes in. It provides homeowners with an overview of what’s going on with their roof—and what steps they might want to take to maintain it or fix any problems that come up.

Benefits of Conducting 4-Point Inspections

  • Fast and Inexpensive

The inspection usually takes just a few minutes and costs less than $200. Compare that with other home improvement options, and you’ll find that a 4-point inspection is quite affordable.

  • Guarantee the Condition of Your Real Estate

Nobody wants to buy a home with hidden defects. If you’re buying or selling a home, you can be sure that your property is in good shape with a 4-point inspection. Whether it’s roofing, plumbing, electricity, or everything in between, every detail will be inspected by an expert. They find problems that other inspectors miss!

  • Avoid Future Headaches

It’s better to prevent problems from occurring than it is trying to fix them after they arise. The same goes for your home. Regularly inspect your house on a bi-annual basis—whether you’re planning on selling it or not—and catch problems that could turn into more costly issues before they can get out of hand. You’ll save money in both repairs and potential costs down the road if you do so, giving you one less thing to worry about. A good inspector can identify potential problems with your home so that they can be addressed before they turn into serious issues.
