Seacliff Inspections is able to offer clients the ability to see "more then what the naked eye can see".
Thermal imaging cameras, also known as infrared cameras, are able to detect very small differences in
temperature. This gives us the ability to "see" behind drywall, above ceilings and the framing around windows and
doors. We are able to then take a picture of the area in question and highlight the various defects not normally
visible to the naked eye. Move your cursor over the picture to the right to see how the room normally

inspector is not using a thermal imaging camera in addition to a digital camera, you are not seeing the whole
Seacliff Inspections uses a "Flir Systems" infrared thermal imaging camera for our HomeSmart+ inspections.
By detecting minute differences in the surface temperature of building components, infrared technology helps to pinpoint
specific areas of concern for further analysis. Infrared imaging can be used to further identifying "concealed" problem
areas that might otherwise go unnoticed around the house such as:
Thermal heat loss in buildings (missing or damaged insulation)
Leaks from plumbing pipes and fixtures
Roof and ceiling leaks
Ineffective weather stripping on doors and windows
Electrical component issues (overheated wiring or circuit breakers)
Improperly installed or defective in-floor heating
Pest infestations (termite tubes, ants, rats, mice or other pests)
Hidden water intrusion / infiltration damage that can lead to mold
And many other areas of concern
In order to enhance the effectiveness of our visual inspection, we provide all clients with a limited complimentary
Infrared Thermal Imaging scan to assist in further identifying "concealed" problems that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Clearly, the value of using thermal imaging technology during an inspection is invaluable. A picture is worth a thousand
words, and if your home inspector is not using a thermal imaging camera in addition to a digital camera, you are not seeing
the whole picture.
