Industry Tools

Using specialized industry tools sometimes can assist in evaluating, inspecting a situation or item. BUT, We never charge extra for these tools – they are just another item in my tool box to help me better serve you. I utilize tools including the ones below as needed:


Thermal Imaging

This item is only a supplemental tool and does not measure moisture – only air temperature differences. BUT the imager can provide a possible indicator that further investigation may be necessary.


Aerial Drone Photography

I utilize a high end aerial camera unit to capture high definition video & pictures of your roof, even if it’s not safe to walk. 


Moisture Meter

One of the major concerns while inspecting is indications of water damage. High quality moisture measuring devices I use are extremely helpful in clarifying potential water damage locations. Reporting on moisture, water intrusion is a routine part of all of our inspection reports.
