Optional Services

INFRARED (THERMAL) IMAGING

This optional service is totally amazing. I basically utilize my infrared camera to detect hidden issues behind the finished surfaces of your building. If there are finished walls or ceilings in the living areas, basement or attic that are situated on the exterior shell of the structure, my IR camera can detect insulation voids or concealed issues that can be revealed without destroying or removing the wall/ceiling material. It’s simply an infrared imaging and measurement camera that can actually "see" and "measure" thermal energy emitted from an object. I can then map out and interpret these thermal readings which can reveal serious issues that cannot be seen by the naked eye or with any conventional or digital photography.

Infrared Scanning - $150.00 an hour ($150.00 for a professional IR report)

 

DRONE AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY

If I ever come into a situation where I am unable to safely view 100% of an inaccessible area of a roof with my own two eyes, I will then utilize my remote-controlled Phantom 2 Vision+ drone to safely fly over your prospective home to view and obtain aerial photos and videos of all hard-to-reach areas of the roof (and its components) from above the property.

Hi Dave,

I just wanted to write and thank you very much for doing our inspection today. You really took an awful lot of extra time to explain things to us. It was a huge help and by far my favorite part of this whole home-buying process. In addition to drawing our attention to the major projects that need to be undertaken right away or in the near future, I was glad that you were also so thorough as to point out smaller things and provide suggestions for fixes that we'd be able to do ourselves. Thanks again for all your effort. I'm finding your "Know Your Home" book a great source of information along with your report. I'll no doubt have some questions for you at some point and really appreciate your willingness to answer them. Have a great rest of your weekend!

Take care,

Sean
