Why THermal imaging?
Many inspectors don't use thermal imaging. The result. They are missing problems that could grow into major issues: electrical issues, mold, rot, and wood-destroying insects.
Other inspectors go out and buy a camera to be on the leading edge of the industry, but don't have the training in the reading thermal images nor building science and as a result, these inspectors find "problems" that are just not there. We call these "false readings". This can be a real problem for the client who goes out with report in hand and hires a contractor to fix the problem only to find that there is no problem. This leads to a loss of time, money and credibility.
To avoid these and other possible problems, hire a trained and certified infrared inspector.
a picture is worth a thousand words. I use thermal Imaging technology in all my inspections.
The infrared camera allows me see possible issues that other inspectors can't. This is why I use an infrared camera on every inspection. It's all about the details.
