The Right Tools for the Job

William and his assistant take pride in using the right tools to get the job done. During your inspection, you may notice the following equipment:

Thermal Imaging

A visual inspection is a vital aspect of buying a home, but the entire process is only complete with thermal imaging. We add this valuable service for free! With thermal imaging, we can see water leaks, missing insulation, and other issues that are usually hidden by walls.

Aerial Drone Photography

Some roofs are simply too high for our inspector to access safely. In those instances, we provide free aerial drone photography to get a close look at the roof’s condition. Please note that the current owner of the property must give permission for us to be able to use a drone during your inspection.

Moisture Meter

Ensuring that there’s not a build-up of moisture in your home is vital for numerous reasons. Not only will this help avoid water related defects and repairs, but it’s also a great way to reduce your risk of mould accumulating in the building.
