Thermal Imaging – Infrared
Due to New Zealand’s leaky home crisis, some banks are now requesting a thermal image survey of a property prior to purchase. However, thermal imaging is not a silver bullet but one of several tools that can be used in moisture detection.
Thermal imaging inspections: detect the surface temperature of an area. Thermal imaging does not see inside walls. It simply enables the inspectors to look for temperature differences that may help to identify the presence of moisture.
Thermal imaging is one tool that can enable The house inspector to carry out a thorough building inspection of the property.
