Industry Tools

Our team will visually inspect your future home. They will also use a few special tools to ensure that your report is thorough and accurate.

360-Degree Camera

This special camera captures images in a 360-degree range.

Thermal Imaging

This allows us to check for leaks, insulation issues, and much more.

Moisture Meter

We’ll make sure there’s no moisture sitting in your home with our moisture meter. If moisture is present, this meter may also help us find accumulated mold growth.

Drone Roof Inspections Available

If you have a multi-story home that isn’t accessible from a one-story ladder, let us know and we will inspect the roof with our drone, weather permitting. On new construction, we will use the drone if the builder doesn’t want us to walk on the roof, if the roof slope is 8/12 or greater, or if it is inaccessible from a one-story ladder.
