THERMAL IMAGING & dRONES

Included with every inspection is an infrared scan of your entire home. With top of the line thermal imaging equipment we can find hidden issues that would otherwise be over looked such as insulation missing, potential electrical issues, moisture intrusion and leaks.

We use drones to access hard to reach or unsafe areas on the roof. Many inspectors only use a visual inspection from the ground on high or inaccessible roof coverings. Its critical to get a visual of these areas to assess the condition and any potential problems that can lead to water intrusion.

What we Inspect

  • HAVC

    The Heating and Cooling components of the house. We check the cooling of the AC and Heating of Furnace. Its important to make sure that all the condensate drain lines are properly installed and insulated to prevent moisture issues in the attic during our hot Texas summers due condensation (sweating). We also check the duct work for any signs of improper installation, leaks or damage.

  • Plumbing

    Drains, sinks, showers and tubs. We check all the fixtures in the house to make sure they are draining properly and no leaks or signs of previous leaks are present. We will also use our top of the line thermal imaging equipment to scan know problem areas to revel problems that would otherwise be invisible on a visual inspection.

  • Structural

    During the structural phase of the inspection we check for signs of foundation movement or settlement and let you know if further evaluation is required. We check the walls and visible component in the crawlspace or attic such as rafters and beams for visible defects in craftsmanship or damage.

  • Roof

    What keeps the water out in those Texas downpours. We try to walk every roof we can that's accessible and its safe to do so. Incase its inaccessible we also have drones with 4k resolution cameras which allows us to view nearly every grain on the shingles. Its the next best thing and a valuable tool as opposed to other inspectors who only observe the roof covering from the ground when its inaccessible. We pay particular attention to vulnerable areas such as penetrations of plumbing and venting pipes and flashings.

  • Electrical

    Electrical issues can be a major problem. Its important to ensure no safety issue such as missing GFCI and AFCI devices are present and are installed in the proper locations. We look in the breaker box and check for common issues and In addition we check all the outlets and and switches as well as lighting within the house which can be either a simple fix such as replacing a bulb or might require an qualified electrician to correct.
