Equipment we use
We use a wide range of equipment in the surveys we carry out. We are always looking for new techniques and ways of diagnosing building defects, providing accurate , scientific information that can help us look after buildings.
We use Viasala Thermo hygrometers with long 8mm probes to asses environmental conditions and the humidity in the house. The long probe helps us get into areas with minimal disruption – behind panelling, in between floor boards , roof voids and more. We look to build an environmental profile of the building to help asses damp and condensation issues.
We use Thermal Imaging cameras where necessary to help identify construction types and also to help in the environmental assessment. The cameras can show due point and condensation risk areas.
Where suitable we use a Drone to undertake Ariel inspections of roofs, parapets and gutters (and other difficult to get to areas) and in more urban areas or where its not possible to fly the Drone, we use pole cameras.
