Welcome to Square 1 Home Inspection - Formally Carl's Inspection Services
Our 4 Point Inspection is a comprehensive examination of four critical home components - the roof, HVAC systems, plumbing system, and electrical system. You'll often find that insurance agencies require these areas of a home to adhere to certain standards before a policy can be issued, creating a need for this system-specific inspections service.
Insurance companies have become increasingly reluctant to issue Homeowner Insurance Policies on older homes.
Their common concern is that there may be conditions in an older home that could become a liability to them. For instance, a home with a roof nearing the end of its reliable service life may fail while under the policy and the homeowner may seek reimbursement from their insurance company for damages to the home or its contents. Similar concerns extend to the condition of the HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems in an older home. If these elements are in poor condition, in need of being updated or replaced or were improperly installed, they may fail and cause fire or water damage to a home.
