What is a
4 Point Inspection
A 4 point inspection is usually a requirement for insurance on older homes. When a home reaches approximately 30 years of age, insurance companies typically want to ensure the four main systems in the home are working properly and might request a 4 point to be completed prior to insuring.
Main Systems Inspected During 4 Point
Can a 4 Point Take the Place of a Home Inspection?
It is true that a 4 point looks at the main systems in the home and can find potential issues within those systems. However, it is commonly misunderstood that this inspection can take the place of a home inspection. A home inspection can help find other potential issues such as structural integrity issues, mold, and others that a 4 point would not uncover.
The 4 point is specifically written for insurance companies and is a great tool for these companies to understand the liability they are taking on before insuring your home.

”This is the 2nd time we have used Rivertown Property Inspections. Tyler was our inspector each time and he did a thorough professional job both times and explained everything to us so that we felt we had a good understanding of the items needing addressing with the Sellers. Will use again and would highly recommend.Shirley WellsGoogle Reviewer
