Moisture Intrusion Water Leaks Home Inspection

What is thermal imaging? how will it help me?

Thermal (or Infrared) imaging is a non-invasive, non-destructive way of evaluating conditions when performing a home or commercial inspection. Defects such as moisture / water defects from roof and wall leaks, overheating and unsafe electrical defects, air leaks, missing insulation all can affect the surrounding temperature, Thermal / Infrared imaging / photography can reveal these and other issues that just cannot be seen by the naked eye or with conventional or digital photography. Many of these type of defects will not be seen with the naked eye… we’re only human, technology helps us do a BETTER JOB.

Some scans with a paid inspection ! Included with your paid inspection are:

  • Electrical Panel Inspection – Hot Spots / Overheated conditions
  • Under Tubs, Sinks and Showers in 2 Story Houses (Water and HVAC systems must be on and working)
  • HVAC / Mechanical System Scan

Full Infrared Services for a separate or additional fee (examples below) also available, additional costs apply. Considerations for time of day and other preparations are needed, call us to discuss how we can help!!
