  • Four Point Inspection

    Older home?
    Know the risk for peace of mind.  Even a well-maintained Tampa home suffers from structural issues and deterioration after 25 years of normal wear and tear.  Find out how the years have treated your older home with a Four Point Inspection from Tampa Wind Inspection Professionals.

     

    When an insurance company requires a Four Point Inspection on a home that is 25 years or older, this is because they need to understand risk before issuing a homeowners insurance policy.  The insurer must weigh and analyze concerns about the remaining service years and general condition of four major systems in a residence.  

    The roof, plumbing system, electrical components and HVAC are the areas of an older home that are most likely to show signs of deterioration and wear in certain ways over time.  The weather in Tampa affects these systems as much as use over several years.  It just so happens that these are the points that are most likely to cost insurers significant expenses for replacement or repair if damage does occur.  With a Four Point Inspection from Tampa Wind Inspection Professionals, homeowners and insurance companies can understand the condition of these elements and appreciate the effects of wear and tear.

  • Roof Inspection

    No house without a roof!

    No such thing as a simple leak.  The average Tampa homeowner doesn’t think twice about their roof - as long as it’s keeping them dry.  A big mistake, considering most leaks don’t manifest themselves on the ceiling below until significant damage has already taken place.  Prevent big problems later by scheduling a Roof Inspection with Tampa Wind Inspection Professionals now.

     

     

    At times, a Four Point Inspection may prompt an insurance company to require a more comprehensive investigation into the roof of a home.  Because the roof is one of the most expensive and fundamental components to a home, insurers want to know more about the expected remaining service life and look into areas of weakness.

    A Roof Inspection is a more thorough and painstaking examination of the structural soundness and stability of this key feature of a home, and it provides an estimation how long the roof is capable of lasting in the Tampa environment.  A helpful roof assessment will also include information on how upgrades and preventative maintenance measures can help extend its life.  Tampa Wind Inspection Professionals provide homeowners and insurers the essential details they need with a comprehensive Roof Inspection.
