Thermal Imaging Building Inspection

Thermal Imaging has many applications and the construction industry is beginning to harness its potential by using it during both construction and renovation processes to find faults and to establish compatibility with environmental standards.

Roof inspections are a key component of this and the attachment of the thermal imaging camera to a drone or UAV makes these possible with minimal set up, safety risk or danger of property damage.  The drone can bear the camera over the roof (or series of roofs in the case of a larger property or housing development) and take both standard and thermal images to assess for damp ingress, flat roof leaks, and insulation performance amongst other things.

Heat loss through windows and walls can be similarly assessed through photography of the property elevations at any height without having to erect scaffolding or ladders and temperatures read to the exact degree where required.

These non-invasive techniques can be applied to a property or group of properties with minimal disruption and no down time – in fact, it’s best if the assessment is carried out when everything is running at full capacity.  Problems can be found without using invasive diagnostic techniques or even pinpointed before they have time to develop to save time, money and inconvenience.

  • Damp Ingress

  • Flat Roof Leaks

  • Heat loss from walls, piping and HVAC components

  • Identification of fault double glazing units

  • Detecting thermal bridging issues

  • Checks on underfloor heating pipework

  • Poor insulation performance

  • Assess dampness and mildew invisible to the naked eye

  • Identify cladding, delamination, bonding and rendering faults

  • Assess compatibility with environmental and sustainability standards
