A quality home inspection can uncover potential issues and reveal critical information about the condition of a home. A well conducted home inspection provides a buyer with a transparent picture of potential repairs, maintenance and associated costs a home may require at the time of inspection and in the near future. All components in the home have a "shelf-life" and professional home inspectors can approximate the age of household plumbing, heating and cooling systems to estimate remaining life expectancy.
A certified home inspector will inspect the exterior and interior of a dwelling and take a closer look at the structure, roof, electrical, plumbing, HVAC and insulation. Missing, damaged, or inadequate insulation, building envelope air leaks, moisture intrusion, and substandard work are costly to homeowners. An infrared camera helps home inspectors quickly see and find the sources of energy inefficiencies, destructive water damage, and structural issues to help customers make informed decisions on needed repairs.
Thermal imaging cameras can instantly show temperature differences to verify what’s wet and what’s dry and also be used to verify air tightness in order to validate energy efficiency. Properties are susceptible to moisture content, and exposure to high moisture content for a prolonged period of time may progressively degrade a material. The use of a moisture meter can accurately detect and measure the percentage of water in a given building material.
