We have a whole host of inspection tools to help us detect leaks and water intrusions. To the left is one of our Thermal Imaging Cameras. It has many uses. One of the uses is to locate water an moisture trapped in the wall.
The Thermal Imaging Camera can not only detect a leak, but often can lead us to detecting the water leak source. Below are what we see when using the camera.
What is a Water Intrusion Inspection
We use all our tools and experience and the history you share with us in our investigation. Sometimes the source of the leak is hidden behind the stucco. Our knowledge of how your home was built allows us to find a solution.
Finding the source of leaks is some what an art. We find the source about 90% of the time on our first visit.
We will note all the defects or possible sources. Our experience tells us to seal everything that might leak.
Why use an inspector
Almost all the Owners we have met, with long term unresolved leaks, have used various subcontractors that sold the owner whatever product they offered. Subcontractors like painters or window companies work on volume. They know the % of jobs they get after giving a quote, so they try to quote enough jobs every month to keep their crews busy. They do not have the time, tools or the knowledge to diagnose a leak. An inspector with the right tools and knowledge will have the time to properly investigate the problem.
Subcontractor’s warranties are generally worthless. If the Sub did not have enough time, tools or knowledge to find/fix the leak before you paid them they will not under warranty. If they promise you an extended warranty, run from them.

Painters generally do not seal the key components of the home and often skimp on paint. They view their job as making the home look good.
Many of the water leaks and intrusions I find are due to the painter not sealing the homes components. Consider hiring us to inspect your painters work. New homes should be painted when they are 5 years old.
