Four Point Inspections and Roof Survey Inspection Training
All insurance carriers require inspections of their policies when the insured’s premises are greater than a certain age, typically ranging from 25 years and older. Insurance agents and carriers want accurate data, and as such Inspection Depot has developed their training program around the experiences of thousands of inspections to combine both the roof condition surveys with 4 point inspections, whereby inspectors will be taught the requirements of both inspections in one program.
Inspectors will learn how to analyze electrical systems, plumbing systems, roofing systems, and HVAC systems and reporting to ensure the protection of the policyholder and insurance carriers is maximized. This program will also review the typical underwriting guidelines such as those of Citizens Property Insurance, covering all aspects of building services and updates, roof verification forms, etc. Most importantly inspectors will be able to complete the roof survey inspection and a 4 point inspection.
Sinkhole Inspection Training
Florida homeowners and insurance carriers have been inundated with sinkhole issues and claims in recent years, many of which have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to analyze and remediate. In 2011 the Florida legislature passed legislation regarding sinkholes and subsequent losses. As such many insurance carriers are now requiring sinkhole inspections across the board, and looking for qualified inspectors with experience to complete these inspections.
Inspection Depot has developed a sinkhole inspection training program, inspection process and procedure specifically for this task. The training program consists of a full day, of both technical training and report writing basics, to ensure the liability of the inspector, the policyholder and the carrier are protected.
