Infrared Imaging with associated image confirming techniques is one of the fastest and most effective methodologies for the detection, location and evaluation of hidden interior moisture or water leakage in your commercial building or your home!
You suspect you have a leak or moisture issue inside your building or residence because you have noticed one or more of the following items:
Finding confirmation is accomplished to a good level of confidence with non-intrusive instrumentation such as capacitive moisture meters and nuclear gauges particularly if we have a known wet reference – see Tools of the Trade for a look at this equipment.
That said, there is nothing like seeing or feeling the wet surface to really know what we are talking about. Intrusive testing can include everything from small holes (1/2”) for conductivity meters or fiber-optic viewing of the interior up to larger holes to allow us to “reach out and touch it.”
Your recent experience and observation is a critical lens that will initially focus our investigation. With that guidance, we will also actively look for other possibilities as a moisture issue can have multiple sources or causes and multiple effects on the structure.
You will receive an immediate oral report of findings followed by an optional written report in pdf format via email. A telephone review of the report may be necessary depending on complexity. The report will include a short description of the process and instrumentation used, the location of the leak or moisture source, recommendations for repair and/or follow-up as well as additional recommended inspections (environmental, structural, etc) as may be deemed advisable. The report will be documented with both infrared and digital daylight paired images that show both finding locations as well as extent to the extent that inclusion is helpful.

On a Durham County school Infrared Roof Inspection Project, our client had this to say:
Mr. McCoy provided a very comprehensive, professional investigation and status report that allowed us to make credible decisions for the roofs of a five building elementary school campus. I would recommend his infrared services to anyone.
