Insurance companies may require a four-point inspection for all homeowner, dwelling and mobile home applications for properties more than 30 years old. One of our Florida-licensed inspector will check the home’s electrical system, plumbing, heating/cooling system (HVAC) and roof.

Any serious hazards or deficiencies (such as exposed wiring, active leaks or evidence of leaks) should be repaired before an application for coverage is submitted.
Roofs older than 25 years (shingle or other type) or 50 years (tile, slate, clay, concrete, or metal) require documentation showing at least three years remaining useful life. A Florida-licensed house inspector must conduct an inspection of the roof to check for any visible signs of damage or deterioration. When a roof has less than three years of remaining useful life, the homeowner must provide proof of a full-roof replacement to the home inspector before any policy is written on the home. The inspector will complete a Roof Inspection Form verifying the roof is in good condition.
