    Infrared Inspection Services

    Utilizing Thermography to detect moisture related defects in your home.

    We utilize FLIR technology for our infrared home inspections. FLIR is the industry leader for providing infrared technology to the home inspection industry.


    Find Hidden Defects

    Thermography home inspections allows homeowners and homebuyers to see inside the walls and structure of their home. Infrared imaging can help to identify possible defects that may not be visible using conventional inspection methods.

    By detecting small but crucial differences in temperature within the house, infrared technology can pinpoint areas of concern, including:

    • Water intrusion/infiltration including hidden moisture damage
    • Leaks in plumbing, pipe and duct work
    • Potential moisture sources for mold issues
    • Roof and ceiling leaks
    • Foundation cracks and other structural concerns
    • Faulty electrical systems
    • Potential energy issues such as heat & energy loss, including loss resulting from missing insulation and ventilation problems
    • Pest infestations (moisture associated with termite nests, rats, mice or other infestations)
