Damp and Timber Reports

Damp and Timber Reports

Our damp remedial inspections are carried out by an experienced remedial surveyor with a wealth of knowledge, acquired through years of experience.

When conducting an inspection of a property, we use a Flir infrared camera (or thermal imaging camera) to detect dampness and building failures alongside using a damp-proof meter combined with our extensive knowledge. Thermal imaging is a non-invasive tool for monitoring dampness and diagnosing the condition of buildings as we can identify problems early, allowing them to be documented and corrected before becoming more serious and more costly to repair.

The integrated FLIRĀ® thermal imaging camera can be used to monitor and diagnose problems more quickly and save time on site. It provides a new perspective and opens up new use cases, including detecting heat loss around windows and doors; spotting moisture and missing insulation; identifying over-heating electrical appliances and circuitry; and seeing in complete darkness. This helps the Remedial surveyor to understand the problem by supplying a thermal pattern of the defect, which maybe outside the human visible light spectrum.

The MR277 is the first FLIR building inspection system to combine the advantages of Infrared Guided Measurement (IGM) and our patented Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX) with advanced environmental sensors to help you quickly locate, clearly identify, and easily document problems. IGM technology and a laser pointer isolate the area where you can use the integrated pin less moisture sensor for non-invasive readings or external pin probe for invasive measurements.
