Fireplace check (small)Home Buyers: You just placed an offer on a house that took you less than an hour to walk through.  Are there any major repairs or years of neglected maintenance lurking in your dream home?  Have a Complete Home Inspection with a thermal scan, and then read the comprehensive report for your reassurance. The reports are generally delivered within a 24 hour period. Shorter deadlines can be accommodated upon request.

A Complete Home Inspection takes 2 to 3 hours and includes all the major systems of a house: roofing, exterior, garage, interior, structure, plumbing, heating/cooling, electrical, insulation/ventilation and built-in appliances.  Every inspection includes a Thermal Imaging Scan to look for hidden leaks and heat loss areas invisible to the naked eye.

Home Sellers: Have a pre-listing inspection done to assess the condition of your home before you put it on the market.  Catch maintenance items and potential problems that may hold up the sale of your house.  A pre-listing inspection is an inexpensive way to find the items in your house that need a tune-up before putting it up for sale.  Don’t wait for the buyer’s home inspection day to find out there is a problem – be proactive and put yourself at an advantage in negotiations.

Thermal Scanning with Infrared Technology: Infrared thermography provides exceptional value by catching hidden defects.

  • Infrared thermography can aid in Home Inspection by:
    • Seeing hidden water leaks in ceilings and walls from plumbing or leaky roofs
    • Identifying  areas of insulation voids that cause heat loss
    • Identifying areas of air infiltration through the building envelope that cause drafts and condensation damage
    • Visually verifying that the in-floor heating system is operating properly

Roof compairison using thermal imaging

There was no visible water staining on this bathroom ceiling, but the thermal imaging camera catches a plumbing leak inside the ceiling from the bathroom above.

Drafty Window

This drafty window may cause condensation damage in the cold of winter.

In floor heating

The in-floor heating in this house is seen to be operating properly.

Roof Insulation

The summer heat penetrates the ceiling of this house through an insulation void in the attic.  This will mean a higher than necessary heating bill in the winter.
