Lately I have done a large amount of inspections regarding foundations and older brick walls in homes and commercial buildings. I think the conventional method of most detection in many peoples mind is to wait for something to happen, because by then it’s at least an inconvenience, worst case $$. Maybe I’m different in the fact that I don’t like costly surprises regarding home repairs. I’m sure many of you feel the same way, and would be willing to hear more about saving time and more so, your hard earned money pertaining to your home or business.
I look at it this way, if there’s a cost effective means in which I can save money and the equity in my home or business, I would use it. With the aide of thermal imaging I’ve been able to not only detect water ingression and moisture, but to prevent the spread of cancer as I call it, in taking over the structure. This not only creates awareness of the issues pertaining to the problem, but also enables the owner to create an early warning plan, enabling you to resolve the problem and possibly save thousands in the process.
As to my earlier mention of brick and block, this is in many cases the foundation of your structure. Why wait for the damage to present itself, why not be proactive and protect your investment with an affordable thermal scan. Let us see what the naked eye is unable.
