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 setup, 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 the thermal 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 downtime – 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.
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

Solar panels have become an increasingly popular choice for homeowners looking to reduce their carbon footprint and save on energy costs. However, it is crucial to ensure that the installation of solar panels on house roofs is done correctly and safely. Regular inspections of domestic solar panel installations are essential to maintain their efficiency and longevity. In this article, we will explore the importance of domestic solar panel inspections, the key aspects that should be assessed during an inspection, and the benefits of conducting regular inspections.
