The roof, along with the foundation, is one of the two most critical and expensive-to-fix structural areas. Be sure you get a good look at the entire roof.
The AREIS “flying camera” can provide roof views not possible with any other method.
Many homes have the water heater in the attic – proper leak precautions can prevent expensive damage to ceilings and walls.
The water heater should have an accessible water cutoff valve and adequate pipe insulation.
The electric service entrance panel should be accessible, appropriately installed and protected from damage.
Breakers in every electrical panel should be labelled.
The inside of a panel can tell a lot of stories about how well the house was built and maintained.
If an outlet tests bad, the inspector will recommend you call an electrician – life safety is critical!
Loose connections can quickly become a fire hazard – call an electrician.
Outdoor electrical outlets should be GFCI-protected and weather resistant.
Plumbing vents and combustion chimneys must meet specific requirements – two of these are too short.
The fireplace chimney cap is critical for keeping rain from damaging the structure. If you can't see the top, how can you know what shape it's in?
The AREIS “flying camera” can provide high resolution views of areas large and small.
The original digital images of the "flying camera" are shot at approximately 12 megapixel resolution and enable you to see details as small as a shingle nailhead. Videos are approximately 4k resolution.
The AREIS “flying camera” enables you to see areas of the roof that might otherwise be inaccessible, especially if the house is multiple stories or has a high-pitched roof. Contact us for a demonstration.
