During your inspection, all of your questions and concerns will be addressed. Your property inspection report will be easy to understand and provides comprehensive information so your purchase decision can be made with confidence. We also suggest a Pre-Inspection for property owners which allow sellers to accurately disclose the condition of their property and systems. Having a property inspection before you purchase, sell, repair or remodel must simply be considered as a necessity.
Thermal Imaging Inspection
Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show clients things about their homes or buildings that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods.
Energy Loss :
- heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors;
- damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems;
- air-conditioner compressor leaks;
- under-fastening and/or missing framing members, and other structural defects that can lead to energy loss; and
- broken seals in double-paned windows.
- plumbing leaks;
- hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage;
- missing, damaged and/or wet insulation; and
- water and moisture intrusion around penetrations and at the foundation and building envelope that could lead to structural damage and mold.
While there is no guarantee that nothing will be missed during the visual inspection. Thermal imaging brings me one step closer to not overlooking anything. So you have to ask yourself: do you want a home inspector that offers thermal imaging or risk going with one that does not. You can count on me!
