  1.     HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning)
  2.     Electrical wiring and panels
  3.     Plumbing connections and fixtures
  4.     Roof


Note: This type of insurance inspection should not be confused with a “standard home inspection” which is broader in scope and detail. Four point home inspections preformed by James Dunn are for renewing or obtaining insurance only. A Four-Point Insurance Inspection is far less in scope than a standard home inspection. The Four-Point Insurance Inspection is a limited, visual survey of the heating/air conditioning, roof, electrical and plumbing systems.


  •     A roof with any leaks at all, or an older roof, typically over 15-years old for a 3-tab asphalt shingle roof, for example. An estimated additional roof life of 3 to 5-years is the usual standard for a roof to be acceptable.
  •     An electric panel with screw-in type fuses.
  •     Newer 3-slot type electric receptacles connected to old wiring that does not have grounding.
  •     An older water heater, typically more than about 20-years old.
  •     Lack of an installed heating system. Window a/c units or plug-in portable heaters are not considered “installed.”
  •     Any evidence of plumbing leaks or other water intrusion into the home, even previous ones.
  •     Older knob-and-tube wiring that’s still “live.”
  •     Exposed, amateur electrical wiring, especially open electrical splices.
  •     Deteriorated, damaged plumbing piping.
  •     Deteriorated washing machine hoses.
