Water Damage & Moisture Intrusion IR Inspections

The primary diagnostic procedure for determining the thermal performance of a building is Infrared Thermography.

Infrared inspections are performed to identify heating and cooling losses due to poorly insulated or installed windows and doors, poor construction, missing or inadequate insulation and moisture intrusion.

Inexpensively identifying and correcting these types of defects plays a significant role in increasing building efficiency and structural integrity and Thermography can help identify surface temperature variations of the building envelop that relates to problems in the structure, thermal bridging, moisture content and air leakage.

Two primary mechanisms for heat loss in buildings are conduction losses through the walls and air leakage including windows and doors. Both can be accurately identified non-invasively and quickly from the surface of the building by utilizing infrared Thermography. Early detection & correction of these problems can be made before extensive damage occurs, saving both time & money.

We offer comprehensive IR building envelope inspections for heat loss, cold air infiltration, and moisture migration. Cascade Thermal Imaging, Inc. has the technical expertise and the top of the line FLIR infrared camera equipment to evaluate any condition within your home, office or manufacturing facility discernable by temperature.

The U. S. Department of Energy has calculated that 40% of a buildings heat/AC loss is located around windows and doors. Cascade Thermal Imaging, Inc can quickly and non-invasively identify the efficiency of your windows and doors and visually show evidence of any heat or cold air infiltration, as well as any moisture migration in these areas of any structure.
