THERMAL IMAGING INSPECTIONS

Thermal imaging inspections provide us with a picture of a specific condition of a building. Thermography measures surface temperatures by using infrared video and still cameras. These tools see light that is in the heat spectrum and undetectable to the naked eye. The resulting images on the video or film record the temperature of the building’s skin recording variances in temperature on a spectrum for analysis. Through understanding thermodynamics and the composition and physics of property/building components, Structural Technologies is able to utilize this tool to detect moisture intrusion in buildings by accessing thermal patterns. The ability to pinpoint thermal anomalies indicative of water and moisture intrusion in buildings allows our building restoration team to accurately locate missing or deficient insulation, fenestration system energy loss and determine component failure resulting water intrusion on flat and shingle roof systems.
