Thermal imaging is a technology that allows the INSPECTOR to show you things about your home that no one can show you using other inspection methods. Thermal imaging produces images of invisible heat energy emitted from objects and sytems in the home and allows us to measure it. Thermal imaging helps to diagnose the problem rather than merely identify symptoms and can sometimes, but not always, identify and document: Electrical faults before they cause a fire, overloaded and undersized circuits, circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement, missing, damaged, and/or wet insulation, heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors, water and moisture intrusion that could lead to mold, possible pest infestation, hidden roof leaks, before they cause serious damage, air conditioner compressor leaks, under fastening and/or missing framing members, structural defects, broken seals in double pane windows, energy loss and efficiency, dangerous flue leaks, damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems, unknown plumbing leaks, overheated equipment. These color images can then be included in the inspection report providing supporting documentation to the report.  A picture is worth a thousand words.

 Our Services

 

Home inspections can help you buy or sell your home with confidence. As trained professionals we have seen it all, and we'll provide invaluable help in turning you into a knowledgeable consumer. Home owners can identify problems in the making and take preventive measures to avoid costly repairs. Sellers can understand conditions the buyer's inspector may point out and put the property in better selling condition by making repairs. Our inspection services include:

Buyers Inspection
In both new and older homes, the best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have us give you a professional home inspection. We are trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention. See our Inspection Overview for more details.

Sellers Inspection
Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a realtor, it's always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses: we help you answer how serious the problems are and which must be immediately addressed and which can wait. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation. See our Inspection Overview for more details.

Commercial Inspection

Commercial Real estate inspections are performed using a T.E.A.M. approach - Technical Expert And Management.

*Depending on the scope of the project, the inspection will be performed by licensed inspectors, engineers and contractors with team captain coordinating the entire effort.

We provide a variety of commercial inspection types, including:

  • Pre-leasing inspections for triple net tenants
  • Post leasing inspections
  • Property condition assessment following departure of triple net tenants
  • Pre-purchase inspection of commercial buildings
  • Pre-sale inspections (eliminate any haggling over the price due to presumed deferred maintenance)

We also provide a due diligence/visual inspection similar to the residential inspection after which the customer is notified which consultant will be needed for further review of the property and/or to provide repair estimates.

Types of commercial buildings we inspect include:

  • Apartments
  • Condominiums
  • Offices
  • Retail stores
  • Industrial

*We do not inspect the following on commercial properties:

  • Code inspection
  • Environmental evaluation
  • Disability access evaluation
  • Life safety or fire protection

*Nor do we review blue prints or building plans

Construction Inspection
In a new home, the quality of construction is often not what it used to be some years ago, therefore many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process, including slab, frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and ensures the quality home that you've dreamed about.

Warranty Inspection

Most builders provide a one-year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a "punch list" of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent to obtain our home inspectors list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a great deal down the road.

The infrared part of my business has been growing for me more than inspection. It was good thing I capitalize on this new technology. I have been able to help people save money on energy loss, and find leaks that our eye can not see.
