Home inspectors are actually required to use only a few types of equipment. In theory, an inspector could perform an inspection that complies with the InterNACHI Standards of Practice using only two pieces of equipment: a flashlight and an electrical tester capable of testing ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) devices. Inspectors are free to use whatever equipment they choose, as long as their inspections comply with the InterNACHI Standards of Practice. Here are examples of some of the equipment used by Strong Tower Home Inspections.
30ft Pole with camera
Our Home Inspector using 30ft pole to get aerial view on a 2 story Multi Unit Roof Inspection. Live View is possible with a camera attached at the top.
Thermal Imaging Camera
Infrared (IR) cameras form images using infrared radiation in a manner similar to the way a conventional camera forms images using visible light. Different colors correspond to different temperatures, so an inspector is able to identify areas that are abnormally hot or cold. The image above shows cold areas at the top of the walls caused by water leak of the upstairs bathroom. This create ability to enhance the Home Inspection.
Crawlbot - Crawlspace Inspection
If a home has a crawlspace it is highly recommended to have it inspected, during our Home Inspections the crawlbot can reach places where a home inspector would normally not be able to access. The full HD video and summary with pictures are part of the home inspection report.
Sewer Line Camera
Our 150 ft sewer line camera is a HD camera that let's us see inside your sewer pipes without having to dig up your floors or knock down your walls. It is an stand alone service at only $250 (or $175 when added to your Home Inspection)
This are just a few examples of the High tech tools use during a home inspection with Strong Tower Home Inspections.
