Tennessee Thermal Imaging

Does the roof leak?

All too often roof leaks are occurring but have not developed obvious visual staining needed to identify their existence! Infrared imaging equipment can identify the heat signatures  associated with elevated moisture conditions in the home. Water leaks that have not yet penetrated the insulation above the ceiling can be identified and documented, 'before' you close on the purchase of your new home!

Thermal Imaging is a technology that allows the Thermographer to show you things about your home/structure that are not possible to achieve using other inspection methods. Thermography is a "heat diagram" or a visible picture using the infrared spectrum of light. This imaging technique is a powerful and noninvasive means of monitoring and diagnosing the condition of buildings. IR inspections can provide immediate documentation of as-built and post-restoration conditions, post-casualty cause and origin data, plumbing and building envelope water intrusion, post-flood and fire/water damaged material assessment that could lead to mold, energy efficiency (missing, damaged, and/or wet insulation, heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors) and electrical problems (Electrical faults before they cause a fire, overloaded and undersized circuits, circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement). Thermal Imaging helps to diagnose the problem rather than merely identify symptoms.

The Infrared test results are based on the readings obtained from the test equipment operated in accordance with the manufacturer’s operating procedures. These results may not be definitive. The results are to be utilized as indicators of adverse conditions based upon differential measurements taken. These are non-intrusive inspection devices intended to extend our ability to detect conditions within this limited non-intrusive inspection. Our goal is to provide testing which verifies latent conditions which would otherwise be inaccessible without destructive and intrusive inspection procedures which is outside the scope of this inspection.
