Examples Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging:
The first step in moisture problem remediation is to quickly and accurately locate and remove all sources of moisture. Infrared cameras instantly show you what’s wet and what’s dry. IR cameras can instantly find the ultimate source with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and minimal disturbance of inhabitants.
Infrared cameras are the inspection assets preferred by building experts for fast, reliable, accurate building diagnosis in the entire range of building problems, from post-catastrophe fire and flood investigations to chronic leaks and moisture problems.

Infrared cameras instantly capture and record high-resolution thermographic images on-board for subsequent downloading to a PC to give the client a clear view of the problem areas.

Infrared Detection for the exterior

Moisture in building materials can destroy structural integrity and nurture mold.

The thermogram (left) clearly shows a leaking bedroom ceiling (visible, right). The leak was assumed by the owner to originate in an upstairs marble-paneled bathroom in the $3 million home. The estimated cost to rip out and replace the marble to access the plumbing was estimated at $80,000! Further IR investigation absolved the bathroom and traced the source of the leak to a clogged weep hole under the threshold of a door leading to an upstairs porch.

Roof Surveys
Roof surveys will never be the same! Infrared cameras instantly show you what’s wet and what’s dry. Water leakage is the number one factor that leads to damaged insulation and substrate, corrosion and weakening of metal decks and building structure, even structural collapse and the growth of mold. Infrared cameras can instantly find the ultimate source with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and minimal disturbance of inhabitants.
