Extended Home Inspection
Mike’s top to bottom inspection, inside and outside, plus Thermal Imaging and Mould Testing.
Mike’s Extended inspection package includes Thermal Imaging to help determine if your home is energy efficient, and checks for air and water infiltration. Protect not only your family’s safety but also their health by testing for any abnormal mould growth.
An Extended Home Inspection provides the next level of protection, with the use of infrared technology when buying a home.
With an extended home inspection, you are getting the most comprehensive house inspection possible, giving you the knowledge and ability to make the right choice for one of the biggest decisions of your life. And then there’s the peace of mind of knowing you’ve reduced the risk even further by having an in-depth evaluation performed to check for any potential hidden problems.
Despite what you might have seen on television or in movies, thermographic imaging cameras can’t see behind walls. Instead, they detect temperature variations related to heat and moisture along building surfaces.
These differences in surface temperature can indicate faults in various building systems, like the insulation of a home, the plumbing system or the electrical system.
The thermal imaging camera detects temperature differences shown as patterns on walls, ceilings and floors. These could be potential wet areas, air leakage, missing insulation or issues with wiring. It can indicate the presence of moisture that would not be visible during a home inspection without a thermal imaging camera. Findings like these could be an indication of previous water issues or a slow leak that should be further investigated.

I’ll pass on the report to the builder to have the items corrected. After everything is fixed up, I would like Steve to come back and check them to make sure the items were fixed properly.
