    Infrared Thermography Inspection

    Infrared Thermography Inspection

    Whether it’s your first home or you are an experienced home buyer or investor, an infrared thermography inspection allows you to have a comprehensive view of what’s behind the walls and can identify potential deficiencies before they cause costly damage. The device works by pinpointing small but significant changes in temperature (Thermal anomalies) throughout any property. The biggest source of damage behind a wall can come from a small leak which can allow moisture to create ideal conditions for mold to develop. Potential electrical issues can also be identified as well as energy loss, foundational cracking, structural concerns, insulation deficiencies, ventilation problems, and even rodent nests. An infrared thermography inspection goes beyond inspecting a property with the naked eye and gives you a complete picture of the property, allowing you the peace of mind you deserve.

    Our Infrared Thermography Inspections Include:

    • Plumbing, Electrical, and Ventilation Systems
    • HVAC efficiency
    • Possible missing insulation behind walls and ceilings
    • Moisture in walls or venting systems
    • Water and moisture intrusion at window seals or other penetrations
    • Circuit Breaker and electrical faults
    • Flue Leaks which can lead to dangerous Co2 levels
    • Rodent or WDI infestations

    Pre-Pour Foundation Inspection

    Pre-Pour Foundation Inspection

    This inspection occurs after all structural steel, vapor barrier, and other foundational components are installed but before the concrete is poured. This is one of the most essential inspections because any deficiencies that are missed during the pre-pour are, in a literal sense, set in stone. B&J Inspections has been providing thorough, comprehensive, inch-by-inch inspections for construction projects for more than three decades and is the most trusted name in the Greater Houston area. We inspect both monolithic and post-tension foundations, trenchwork, pads, plumbing, and electrical systems. We also verify that the plans and engineering documents match the work that has been completed.

    Our Pre-Pour Inspections include:

    • Checking all foundation work, including bracing structures and forms
    • Inspecting post-tension cable systems for code compliance
    • Verifying steel size and placement
    • Inspecting interior pads for compaction issues
    • Checking vapor barriers for any potential tears or other defects
    • Verifying grade to avoid drainage issues
    • Inspecting exposed plumbing or electrical systems
    • Verifying beam depths & widths

    Pre-drywall Inspection

    Pre-drywall Inspection

    During the construction process, it’s imperative to have a pre-drywall inspection to ensure that your property is being constructed to meet not only the specifications laid out by your architect but also city and state regulations and pass the necessary inspections to obtain a certificate of occupancy. Pre-drywall refers to the phase of construction immediately following the installation of structural elements, including doors, windows, foundation, flooring, framing, and roof components, as well as plumbing and electrical rough-ins. The benefit of conducting this inspection during construction phases is that once the drywall is hung, many of these elements are obscured and can cause issues in the future. B&J Inspections has been delivering inch-by-inch pre-drywall and phase inspections for the greater Houston area for more than three decades and provides an impartial report during every step of your construction project.

    Pre-Drywall and Phase Inspections include:

    • Foundation and Framing structures
