Thermal imaging is a great way to see building defects, this is done by the ever so slightly different temperatures. This year has been our busiest year with thermal imaging surveys because of the bad weather, we were carrying out surveys for leak detection, storm damage and helping insurance companies find the actual problem. We have had great feedback from customers as they can put trust in us to do the necessary repairs as they can actually see the problem on the screen. All of reports contain the thermal images and picture in picture if necessary to define the area in question. All of our surveys are carried out with the Flir T600, this is a high end camera offering superior images compared to low end cameras. Our surveyor Ross Charters is a fully qualified certified level 1 Infrared Thermographer.
