Thermographic Inspections Perth

Our team of certified infrared thermographers brings you the power of advanced thermal imaging technology to provide accurate assessments and valuable insights for your residential and commercial building. We recently interviewed our head building inspector, builder and thermographer Russell McCarthy to get the low-down on thermographic testing.




Are you truly aware of what lies beneath the surface of your property? Unseen issues can wreak havoc on your investment, compromising its safety, efficiency & value. At WA Building Inspections, we offer professional thermographic building inspections in Perth, Australia, utilising cutting-edge technology (such as the FLIR E4 thermal camera) and expertise to reveal the hidden truths of your property.



Explanation of Thermographic Building Inspections:

Thermographic building inspections are a game-changer in property evaluation. By harnessing the power of thermal imaging (aka infrared imaging), our team of experienced thermographers in Perth can detect anomalies and thermal patterns that escape the naked eye. This non-invasive technique allows us to identify potential problems, even those lurking behind walls, floors or ceilings.



Key Benefits of Thermographic Building Inspections:


Early Detection of Hidden Issues:

Our thermographic inspections are your shield against unforeseen troubles. By detecting electrical faults, plumbing leaks, insulation deficiencies & other hidden defects at their early stages, we empower you to address these issues proactively, saving you from costly repairs down the road. This section that Russell explained to me with some stunning videos (down the page) reminded me of my own incident in an apartment I bought 7 years ago that I had to tear down an entire wall to detect a water leak. Why oh why didn’t I get a thermal inspection instead?


Enhanced Energy Efficiency:

Is your property leaking energy and money? Our thermographic testing unveils energy inefficiencies by pinpointing areas of heat loss, insulation gaps & air leaks. Armed with these insights, you can take targeted measures to improve energy efficiency, leading to long-term cost savings – and who wouldn’t appreciate a few extra bucks in their pocket.


Prevention of Structural Problems:

Don’t let silent threats risk the structural integrity of your property. Our thermographic inspections are designed to reveal moisture intrusion, leaks & dampness that can silently deteriorate your building’s foundation and structural components. Early detection means prompt action, preventing mold growth, rot & potential damage. Again, this section reminds me of that damned apartment I bought 7 years ago. After tearing down the wall to infact confirm it was water damage, I had a $20,000 bill to repair the dotten timber structure. The builder tells me it had been leaking water from the balcony for 10 years or more. I can’t help but think every house should have a thermal inspection performed when they buy the property for quick peace of mind.


Improved Safety:

Put safety first with our thermographic inspections. Our trained thermographers identify overheating electrical components, potential fire hazards, and other safety risks that may go unnoticed by the naked eye. By addressing these concerns promptly, you safeguard the well-being of occupants, family, tenants etc and ensure a secure environment.
