The ThermoPhoto Difference – It’s the Technology

Free Infrared Thermography Scan as part of your Home Inspection. This is the ThermoPhoto Inc. Home Inspection difference. We not only identify obvious surface problems that need to be addressed, but help you see what lies beneath. We use a state-of-the-art infrared technology, thermography.    

Infrared thermography is a heat sensory application which enables us to visually see temperature difference which translates into finding situations a keen inspector may overlook. It allows us to virtually see into your building envelope, behind walls, and in your electrical system. ThermoPhoto Inc. uses this technology in home inspections to diagnose your home and look for potential fire hazards, water damage, pest/rodents, basement problems, and anomalies in your building envelope.

Because we understand the significance and financial commitment of investing in commercial properties, we work hard to make sure the investment is sound by providing our clients with a thorough understanding of the building’s condition. All of our commercial building inspections meet or exceed ASTM Standard E2018-01 for Property Condition Assessments and include the following components:

  • Foundation — construction, walls, floors
  • Roof — covering, flashing, chimneys, drainage
  • Attic — ventilation, vapor barriers
  • Insulation — type, amount
  • Interior Spaces — Walls, Floors, Offices, Bathrooms
  • Exterior — Site, Walls, Windows & Doors
  • Electrical & Plumbing Systems
  • Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC)

We use cutting-edge technologies, such as thermal imaging, to better assess roofs, commercial
building envelopes, electrical, plumbing, and other critical components of commercial buildings.

In accordance with industry practices, a standard commercial building inspection does not include the inspection of trade fixtures, such as refrigeration units, coolers, commercial grade ovens, and stoves.

After a thorough commercial building inspection, we should be able to provide answers to the following questions:

  • What condition are the building’s systems and components in?
  • What costly defects are present and require immediate attention?
  • What items will require repair, maintenance or replacement?

To better serve the needs of our commercial clients, we offer the following additional services: Inspecting for structural and non-structural pest infestation and/or water intrusion/damage.

  • EIFS/synthetic stucco
  • Thermal Imaging


ThermoPhotos’ Building Inspections provides a comprehensive narrative-style written report, which includes digital photos (and if available thermograms) of pertinent items. A summary report is provided with each commercial building inspection to highlight areas that are of special or immediate concern.
