Thermal home inspection - Brilliant move
It’s clear that you understand why a home inspection is important. Having a home inspection is designed to protect you, your family and your investment. Thorough home inspections can identify underlying problems with the home’s major systems including the heating, air conditioning, electrical, roofing, foundation, and plumbing systems.
I encourage you to join me for the entire inspection.
This is your opportunity to learn about the condition of your home, first hand. It’s a great time to ask questions and hear the answers straight hand. Inspecting your home right from the beginning, through a straight-forward inspection approach, arms you with knowledge about your home and provides security that you will appreciate.
When your home inspector uses the best tools and techniques during your home inspection it helps you feel comfortable with your decision. Hard evidence uncovered during your inspection reduces the risk of unexpected and costly surprises.
That’s why all of my home inspections are tailored to include thermal imaging technology to look for concealed water problems. During your home inspection, thermal imaging technology will be used to uncover hidden moisture in the most vulnerable areas like basements, below roofs, around ceilings, windows and doors, and in bathrooms. Leading edge infrared thermal cameras give home inspectors that use them a huge advantage that can save their clients thousands. Clearly, infrared camera inspections are a must for anyone serious about buying a home.
The right home inspection should be thorough, clear and a completely unbiased assessment of a home.

The Standards by which your home inspection will be conducted are a set of well-defined guidelines to evaluate the condition of your home. The Standards are detailed and very thorough and they make for sound inspections so we all know what to expect from your inspection.
