Four Point Home Inspections are limited inspections that focus on the four main areas in a home: HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning), electrical wiring and panels, plumbing connections and fixtures, and the roof. Often required by insurance companies, this limited inspection is normally necessary to obtain homeowners insurance or for the renewal of an existing policy. The Four Point Inspection report will include the age and condition of each of these four areas.
Wind Mitigation is particularly important for homeowners in the Florida Keys. Also referred to as a “windstorm inspection,” Wind Mitigation techniques are designed to assess and limit the amount of wind damage that could occur to the structure of your home.

In addition to helping you minimize the possible damage to your home in the event of high winds, a Wind Mitigation Inspection will provide you with the necessary verification for applying for and receiving any incentives or credits offered by insurance companies.
Sprinkler System / Irrigation Inspections
Before you purchase a home with a sprinkler or irrigation system, it is important to have it inspected. Sprinkler Systems can have potential leaks or failures that could lead to higher water bills or water damage to your new home. Low Keys Home Inspections offers a comprehensive inspection of a property’s sprinkler system that will assess the controllers, connections, pressure, drains, sensors, water meters, sprinkler head locations and overall sprinkler system operations. This type of inspection may uncover possible defects that could lead to leaks, clogs, or other defects.
Pool and Spa Inspections
The existence of pools and spas on a property is particularly common in waterfront homes and other houses in the Florida Keys. While your pool company may keep your pool clean, a Pool and Spa Inspection by a Certified Home Inspector will thoroughly assess the condition and safety of your pool. Low Keys Home Inspections will do a comprehensive inspection to ensure that the pool or spa’s systems are in good condition, are working properly and are clear of any potential hazards.
Mold has been linked to severe cases of asthma immune disorders bleeding lungs and other serious diseases. Mold can slowly destroy your home causing major structural damage. This is why it’s important to catch early to prevent further deterioration. Our investigation is performed with visual observations of indoors and outdoors. We use thermal imagery and moisture meters to check for high moisture or leaks. Any visible mold can be sampled and lab-tested to identify the type of mold and its severity. If found needed, we will take air samples. We take a background air sample from outside to compare it to indoor samples. This lets us know when there is a problem. We only perform air samples and tape lift samples when found necessary.

Roof Conditions Report
Roof Conditions Reports are required by some insurance companies and should be done once before the season with the most severe weather and once after. Here in the Florida Keys, where hot weather rules, summer is the severe season. The solar UV radiation is higher, and the roof is subjected to high heat and to thermal shock due to sudden cooling during summer rains. Homeowners want to check the roof before the severe season to prepare the roof for its ordeal to come and once after it has weathered the season to repair any problems that happened during. Low Keys Home Inspections is proud to offer comprehensive roof inspections.
