 "Thanks you for the time you spent explaining in detail the repair items. I had an inspection in the past but this was our first experience with Infrared. Dean picked up an area of water penetration that was not visible and then he confirmed it with a moisture meter. The pictures in the report made it clear what the repairs were and helped when negotiating with the Seller."

Technology, Experience & Trust - Home Inspections in Houston TX

Technology:
Buyers Inspection Services uses Infrared Thermal Imaging (IR) on all home inspections performed in Houston, Sugar Land, Katy and the surrounding areas. IR is the latest tool to help the home inspector locate deficient area(s) in the dwelling. penetrations, roof leaks, missing insulation, overheating breakers, plumbing leaks are all problems that allow a qualified operator to make an educated interpretation of what is occurring. Infrared imaging is included on every home inspection. The picture below is an overheating electrical wire and breaker inside of the main service panel.

To measure foundation elevations (level or out of level) we use a Compulevel™ or Ziplevel® to document areas of slope/deflection that may indicate a foundation that is not performing. These measurements can help provide object data in evaluating foundation performance. No need to roll a marble across a sloping floor.
