Infrared cameras capture temperature readings that our highly trained inspectors interpret through qualitative analysis to determine if a home or building has concerns that should be further evaluated by a specialist. If a concern does exist, this advanced technology can also help pinpoint the source location so repairs can be made accurately and swiftly. When used during a home inspection, infrared technology can provide additional information about:
While infrared is certainly a highly advanced diagnostic tool, it is not “X-ray vision” as some might think. A home inspector still cannot ‘see through walls’ or predict future conditions. And, an infrared camera is not a ‘point and shoot’ piece of equipment. It takes a highly skilled home inspector also trained in infrared science to accurately interpret the infrared imagery.
Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water, and gets into the air you breathe. Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. You can't see, smell, or taste radon, but it may be a problem in your home. When you breathe air containing radon, you can get lung cancer. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.

Drones are an increasingly popular tool used by home inspectors. Its applications are numerous: to inspect a roof, rather than climbing a ladder and walking it; to get a better closeup view of the upper exterior, when placing and climbing a ladder to do so may be difficult; and to get an aerial view of the entire property, including foliage, drainage, and fencing and more.

New construction phase inspections are performed during various phases of your home’s building process to verify the integrity of workmanship and to address defects to be corrected before becoming inaccessible after construction. GRM Home Inspections Services provides inspections after each of three new construction phases of the build: after the foundation or slab is poured, pre-drywall or after framing is complete and before the home’s final walk-through to ensure all systems are working properly before closing.
