In 2018 alone, our team inspected 92 properties in 19 states for a total of 26 million square feet. We have identified significant hidden building defects that have cost from $2 to $5 million dollars in underlying structural repairs.
Our infrared inspection services include:

After inspection, we interpret the infrared data and provide clients with a comprehensive report. High-resolution digital images can be provided in a traditional PDF report format that outlines concerns found during the inspection and recommendations for proper repairs. They can also be uploaded to our cloud reporting platform to produce a large format stitched image or a 3D model that can easily be annotated, measured, and shared.
