Thermal Imaging: Included in our Standard and Standard Plus Snagging Services
Thermal inspections play a pivotal role in our snagging services, aimed at offering a glimpse into the integrity of your newly built property. Included in our standard service is a Thermal Lite Inspection, utilising specialist infrared technology to pinpoint common internal issues such as heat loss, moisture intrusion, and electrical anomalies, among others. This service is crafted to provide an initial overview, aiding in the early identification of common concerns that may warrant further investigation.
Our Thermal Lite service focuses on inspecting key internal areas known for heat loss including doors, windows, and radiators, along with other notable sites. Although we are not thermographic specialists, our industry-standard thermal cameras, inspected and aligned with NHBC methodology, offer a reliable insight into potential problem areas. Our primary goal is to identify and advise on possible issues, helping our clients make informed decisions moving forward.
As snagging specialists, we regard thermal imaging as a valuable tool in our repertoire, essential in providing a well-rounded snagging service to our clientele.
