All basic home inspections include a detailed report of a home's structure, roof, exterior, foundation, heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical, fireplace, attic, insulation, ventilation, doors, windows and interior. A full home inspection also includes the Wind Mitigation and 4-Point insurance inspections.
Florida wind mitigation inspectors examine these key safety features: Roof Shape, Roof Bracing of Gable Ends, Roof Deck Attachment, Roof Coverings, Roof-to-Wall Connections, Water Resistance, Doors and Openings Protection. These features will be evaluated to determine how wind resilient your home is with it’s current features and will often qualify you for an insurance discount.
In Florida, most insurance companies require a Four Point Inspection. This inspection covers the four main systems of a house: HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning), Roof, Plumbing and Electrical Systems.
