Thermal Inspection

We will use thermographic cameras on the roof and in the conditioned spaces of the home to detect moisture, over heated electrical circuits and devices as well as areas of energy loss. Detecting areas of energy loss with a thermal camera is most effective when the difference between the outside temperature and the temperature in the conditioned space is high.

Sewer/Septic Scope

A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line leading from the house at/near the foundation and connecting to the city or HOA tap or septic tank. A lateral sewer line is the privately-owned pipeline connecting the property to the publicly-owned main sewer line, HOA tap, or septic tank.  Sewer-scoping the line can reveal blockages, damage to the pipe system, and other problems. A sewer scope inspection can be critical to identifying and confirming these problems, which must be addressed immediately.

Radon Testing

Radon is an odorless and invisible radioactive gas naturally released from rocks, soil, and water. Radon can get trapped inside homes and buildings and build up in the air. Over time, breathing in high levels of radon can cause lung cancer. Maine and New Hampshire are known to have many homes with high radon levels.  In addition to seeping up from the ground radon can enter your home through your well water as well. We are certified to test for both radon in the air as well as the home's water supply. Enjoy fast accurate results from the best and latest testing technology.
