dayton ohio home inspection - thermal inspectionThanks to our advanced technology, we offer a one-of-a-kind approach to the home inspection process. This process combines a traditional visual inspection with a high-tech procedure unmatched by most other home inspection companies.

 

The Advanced Infrared Home Inspection

 

We begin with a thorough examination of the home’s walls, ceiling, floors, plumbing and wiring. Differences in temperature show up as thermal variations which provide us with crucial information that could range from energy loss and electrical problems to water damage, roof and pipe leaks, mold growth, pest and vermin infestations, and structural defects.

 
We screen for:
 
  • Internal structural problems
  • Moisture concerns
  • Termites and other insects
  • Pipe and Duct-work leaks
  • Roof and ceiling leaks
  • Heat loss / Energy loss
  • Insulation deficiencies
  • Rats, mice, and other pests
 
 

The Visual Home Inspection

 

We combine the infrared scan with a traditional (visual) home inspection, paying special attention to the warning signs detected in the infrared scan. During this process we investigate “suspicious” areas, as indicated by the infrared scan, and seek to identify and confirm the problem or problems.

 

The traditional visual inspection includes:

 
  • Roof, vents, flashings, and trim.
  • Gutters and downspouts.
  • Skylight, chimney and other roof penetrations.
  • Decks, stoops, porches, walkways, and railings.
  • Eaves, soffit and fascia.
  • Grading and drainage.
  • Basement, foundation and crawlspace.
  • Water penetration and foundation movement.
  • Heating systems.
  • Cooling systems.
  • Lighting and switches.
