Special Tools

Brad is a big believer in having the right tools for the job. He will use a combination of visual inspections and tools to inspect your home.

Thermal Imaging Camera

Thermal Imaging

Being able to look inside your walls without cutting them open is what thermal imaging is all about! Find out about leaks, a lack of insulation, hot spots, and more.

Drone Camera

Aerial Drone Photography

We know that walking some roofs is too dangerous. Therefore, we employ an aerial drone to capture a comprehensive image of your roof. From there, we can figure out what’s right – and wrong – with it.

Moisture Meter

Moisture Meter

If you’re uncertain if there’s an accumulation of moisture in your home, our moisture meter will relieve your uncertainty. It can also discover related mold accumulations.
