Infrared Drone FLIR Thermal Inspections

Aerial Thermal Inspection (FLIR) Services:

Thermal Inspection Services with imaging also known as infrared thermography services is a service we started offering at the request of our clients. We had several of our commercial clients asked us if we could help them assess damage after a severe storm in the area that damaged commercial and residential property.   

There are many reasons why building inspections are conducted. Governmental agencies use building inspections to check compliance with building plans and with local codes and ordinances.  Building inspections are a routine part of buying and selling homes, helping prospective sellers identify problems they are legally responsible for and helping buyers know what they are getting into.

From construction to energy, deliverables from FLIR thermal imaging sensors collected and analyzed with Measure’s processing and analysis tools are leading the use of drones into the next frontier.

Our drone thermographic inspection is non-destructive and requires no contact with the property. You do not need to risk workers climbing on your roof

Property managers also use inspections for preventative maintenance. Building inspectors are called upon in the process of construction itself, to help the builders with structural design issues, storm water handling issues, and electrical concerns.  As buildings age and settle, or weather storms, or undergo renovation or construction of additions, building inspectors are often called in to address safety concerns. Inspectors usually check the structure of the buildings as a whole, the foundation, the roof, the electrical systems, the plumbing systems, the interiors of walls, the attic, insulation, air conditioning, appliances, and pools.

Our expertise is in aerial infrared imaging and commercial building thermal inspection services. Using our proven aerial inspection techniques, along with the top of the line thermography (FLIR) equipment, we can rapidly identify hidden damage to your residential or commercial. Our thermal inspection services provide the interested party with an independent analysis of the building’s structural integrity.

It is a completely non-invasive procedure: to determine if there are voids in the external insulation of a building, the technician may not even need to enter the building.

The amount of contributing factors is difficult to quantify, but here is the essential idea. Thermal roof inspections can detect leaks in flat roofs or warn you about excessive temperature or cooling losses. The roof heats up in the day, then cools down after sunset, unless there are leaks. Leaks on flat roofs create water pools beneath the roofing boards. The insulation cools down much faster after sunset than the wet insulation, creating thermal images. The best time to capture these images is 30-60 minutes after sunset, when the weather is calm. It is possible to capture these images any time after sunset, depending on the weather.
