We offer an additional step to your home inspection that is revolutionizing the home buying and selling process. At PTJ Home Defenders we are a Certified Master Thermographer which means we have the technology and equipment to dive deeper into a home inspection to uncover potential underlying issues. Thermal imaging is essentially heat imaging. The technology and equipment used to look at warm and cold heat signatures can uncover hidden areas of concern. For example, leaks will absorb heat energy revealing a cool signature with our camera. We can detect issues with roofing, plumbing, electrical, walls, and even pests with thermal imaging. Our expertise and training allow us to accurately interpret the results and how to deal with them. No more buying a home only to find a leak that was undetected or an issue with the HVAC. Keep in mind when purchasing a home, homes are not free from defects and flaws, but our assessments are intended to fully disclose the condition of the property.
