FIRST OF ALL, I AM VERY WELL AWARE OF THE HARD WORK AND TIME YOU HAVE TO PUT INTO EACH AND EVERY POTENTIAL SALE. I UNDERSTAND HOW SOME INSPECTORS CAN LITERALLY "KILL THE DEAL" BY NOT REALIZING HOW TO PROPERLY INFORM THE BUYER OF CONCERNS IN A NON-ALARMING FASHION. SOME HOME INSPECTORS SEEM TO CAPITALIZE ON HOW MUCH STUFF THEY FIND WRONG AS IF IT (0 comments)
Thermal Imaging is the only way to see the true condition of a home before the purchase. A conventional flashlight home inspection is essential but thermal imaging is equally if not more essential in determing the true condition of a home. Don't try an pick and choose between these two inspection methods but instead find a home inspector that is certified in both home inspections and thermal imaging.
Many home inspectors offer thermal imaging at no additional charge so using a non-infrared inspector is paying for a service with (0 comments)

The Utah Home Buyers How To Inspect Your Own Air Conditioning Unit Guide, by Power Check Infrared Home Inspections Lets face it, many folks are trying to get by with saving every dollar possible.

That would be like someone taking their car to a shop when it's running perfect and asking the mechanic if he can find something wrong with it. The fact is (0 comments)
They say a painter never paints his own home, plumbers usually have a running toilet or leaking faucet, and a carpet cleaner usually has dirty carpet. I can definitely see how many these thoughts could be true. I guess this could be viewed as one of those "get the log out of your own eye before trying to help someone get the twig out of their eye" As a home Inspector, I spend everyday identifying, explaining, and recommending options for people to implement concerning home maintenance and yet I've failed (1 comments)

Another deck defect that appears to be common with Utah home inspections is improper attachment or anchoring to the home(shown below). This deck is simply nailed to the (0 comments)

This Moisture Was Trying To Hide From My Infrared Camera During A Home Inspection In Ogden, Utah Today! Infrared Home Inspectors have become moistures worst nightmare.

The plumbing line had a slow leak that began to grow with time. The areas of BLUE show the moisture hiding behind the sheetrock. The moisture is moving across the ceiling and down the wall.
Without infrared technolgy this moisture (2 comments)
