A visual inspection may not be enough. Our Infrared Thermal Inspection can identify and document moisture issues, loss of energy, or unexpected hot spots so that you will know about these issues during the inspection.
What is an Infrared Thermal Inspection?
Infrared (thermal imaging) inspection is an advanced, non-invasive technology involving the use of infrared cameras to show surface temperature differences. The use of IR cameras helps discover problems that wouldn’t usually be seen by the naked eye.
Here at Rod Inspects, LLC, we guarantee an accurate interpretation of results to meet your needs. We give actionable information to help you proceed with necessary repairs, should there be any.
The limitation of infrared inspection is that future problems cannot be predicted. Of course, just like any other, issues that are left unaddressed could lead to problems later on.
Rod and Derek consistently provide excellent service. Highly recommend the team at Rod Inspects for their thorough inspection services, attention to detail, promptness in generating reports, and highly professional interactions with home buyers. – Review of Rod Inspects By Rachael Inch
