Building surveys using thermal imagery is a harmless way of assessing a building safely without the risk of causing damage. By using thermal imagery it can allow you to see problems with the building that you can’t always see with the naked eye. Typical problems highlighted by a thermal building survey would include:
Heritage homes and listed buildings by there very nature are susceptible to deterioration due to weathering and age. Roof damage, missing tiles and ridge tiles are a common issue due to the buildings height and design therefore not always visible to the human eye.
By using our thermal drone service we can easily identify damage to a buildings roof ensuring repairs can be completed quickly preventing any damage from water ingress or heat loss.
Our thermal imaging surveys benefit housing associations by ensuring the properties are maintained to a safe level, are insulated correctly and remain energy efficient. A thermal survey will identify any poor workmanship that has been completed to an unacceptable level, typically poor installation of double glazing, soffits and fascia boards leading to energy/ heat loss.
The survey will clearly identify areas that need to be corrected and a re survey can be carried out to check the work has been completed correctly and to an acceptable level. A consideration for Housing associations is that for all building works over a set project value are accompanied by a thermal survey as evidence of a completed contract to an acceptable level.
Religious buildings are taller that most buildings and as such any damage to the building is not always easy to spot, with our thermal drones we can quickly asses the building for any signs of damage from cracking ridge tiles to missing ridge tiles, although not always noticeable to the naked eye the use of a thermal drone will allow us to see the heat difference making it easy to spot damage.
Care homes should be as energy efficient as possible, thermal imaging will not only help to identify any areas of heat/ energy loss but also help identify other issues such as damp. Thermal imaging on a new build care home will not only ensure that contractors have completed the work to an acceptable level but also help towards valuable credits for your BREEAM rating.
