Leading-edge inspection technologies improve results.
Drone videography makes inspections more thorough, more efficient, and safer than ever before.
American Pride Home Inspections can closely examine the roof, chimneys,
drainage system and vent flashings of a home from the safety of ground level. Inspecting by drone
helps to minimize the need for climbing and walking on shingles or fragile roofing tiles, which can
degrade the roof covering. Drones also allow inspections into areas that may not have been physically
accessible before. And the high resolution video captured by drone provides documentation that enables
inspectors to easily revisit — and zoom in on — roofing, gutters, chimneys, flashing,
wiring, and other areas that would be otherwise difficult to access.
Infrared thermography detects leaks and other problems invisible to the human eye.
Another useful tool in the American Pride Home Inspections arsenal is infrared thermography. Specially-built thermographic
cameras that display temperature readings enable American Pride Home Inspections to detect cold air infiltration
around windows and doors, at joints and seams that appear to the naked eye to be fine. These same cameras can also be
used to discover excessive heat in electrical wiring, or to check temperature readings for the HVAC system. They can also
help in locating wet areas that would not otherwise be visible to most home inspectors.
