Scott is one of the few available Thermographer/consultants that is a FLIR trained Level III Thermographer, and the only one in the Pacific NW.
Thermal Imaging, using a high resolution Infrared Camera is a technologically advanced, non destructive diagnostic service. It is unparalleled as a diagnostic tool for non destructive assessment in a wide range of applications. Moisture Intrusion, Energy Surveys or Audits, Electrical defect scans and Predictive Maintenance are a few of the IR services offered. The information on this page is assembled to give you some background on the capabilities of this new technology. Particularly, the downloads on this page show some specific applications. This cost of IR diagnostics depends upon the application and weather it is included as part of an overall inspection. When you call to ask about your inspection or schedule one, I will be happy to discuss the application and cost of this service with you at that time.

About Infrared Thermography
Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to “see” and “measure” thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye; it’s the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared. The higher the object’s temperature, the greater the IR radiation emitted. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot. Infrared thermography cameras produce images of invisible infrared or “heat” radiation and provide precise non-contact temperature measurement capabilities. Nearly everything gets hot before it fails, making infrared cameras extremely cost-effective, valuable diagnostic tools in many diverse applications. And as industry strives to improve manufacturing efficiencies, manage energy, improve product quality, and enhance worker safety, new applications for infrared cameras continually emerge.
Moisture in building materials can destroy structural integrity and nurture mold. The first step in moisture problem remediation is to quickly and accurately locate and remove all sources of moisture. infrared cameras instantly show you what’s wet and what’s dry. IR cameras can instantly find the ultimate source with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and minimal disturbance of inhabitants. infrared cameras are the inspection assets preferred by building experts for fast, reliable, accurate building diagnosis in the entire range of building problems, from post-catastrophe fire and flood investigations to chronic leaks and moisture problems.
