Thermal Imaging

We use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. By evaluating the images, I can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as wood destroying pest and rodent infestations, and flue leaks in the chimney.

Aerial Drone Photography

We use a state-of-the-art, camera-mounted unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or drone to capture images of unsafe or hard-to-access areas, such as tall roofs. We can get an up close look at any issues or defects that would otherwise not be properly inspected and reported.
