When you finally get to the end of the process of finding a home, inspection in needed to make an educated investment decision. Is the roof in good condition? Is the water heater and plumbing aspects of the structure functioning properly? Is the electrical system safe? A home inspection is a must for new construction as well as older homes. An inspection will give you a detailed snapshot of the condition of the building from top to bottom. Don’t let minor deferred maintenance issues go unnoticed and ruin your dream home. Get educated on your investment and have the comfort of true peace of mind.
Keep in mind that there isn’t a home out there that is flawless and anything & everything can be repaired or replaced. The question is – at what cost? Evaluating the condition of the home paired with the cost of repairs and maintenance is the most pragmatic approach to purchasing a home.
What Is a Wind Mitigation Inspection?
As a homeowner with homeowners insurance, state law entitles you to certain premium reductions, but without inspection, you can’t get them! If you haven’t had a windstorm insurance inspection at your current home, you are PROBABLY PAYING TOO MUCH FOR YOUR HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE!
During a wind mitigation inspection, as a licensed inspector, I will report on the key features that may decrease the amount of damage your home suffers during a hurricane or strong windstorm. These features fall into several categories, such as exterior construction type, roof shape and construction methods, the age of roof covering, door and window opening protection as well as the actual year the home was built. Another factor may be the elevation of a property and how it relates to wind speed.
Thurmond Home Inspections takes great pride in our quality Wind Mitigation Inspections. We work closely with other industry leaders and maintain the most current education on how to properly perform these inspections. You will receive the most detailed report that will completely satisfy the insurance carrier beyond their expectations without the hassle of an insurance carrier reinspection.
What Is a Four Point Home Inspection?
A four-point home inspection generally includes but is not limited to a skilled inspection of the roof, the electrical system, plumbing system, and the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. The different systems in your home have a varying but somewhat predictable lifespan. Most of the information gathered for a four-point inspection pertains to just that. However, the information is not limited to the life expectancy of the systems. Also, considered are issues such as the type of wiring used in the home and even the manufacturers of the equipment. We also look for signs of equipment or system failures. Our report will help the homeowner know what areas need to be rectified in order to gain the coverage they need.
What a Four Point Inspection Is not!
A four-point home inspection is not a pre-purchase/pre-sale home inspection, which is much more comprehensive in nature. The four-point home inspection only satisfies insurance carrier requirements of particular home systems and lacks the necessary information for you to make an informed decision in buying a home or its condition for selling. Check our discounted prices for combining such inspections.
It also is not a guarantee that the insurance carrier will qualify you, that the home is insurable, that the carrier will require no other certifications or inspections, or that you won’t be required to have work performed after the home inspection. Thurmond Home Inspections is an independent corporation and does not work for or have any control over insurance companies.
