Infrared thermal imaging and state-of-the-art technology.
We catch issues others might miss, and find hidden surprises before they become problems.
With more than 6,000+ inspections performed in the Tulsa area, we take pride in our team’s experience and professionalism. But no matter how experienced an inspector is, there are many potential issues that are invisible to the naked eye. Many home inspectors don’t have the tools to spot these hidden issues. We do, and we put them to work for you. Our tools include infrared thermal imagers, fiberoptic endoscope inspection cameras, mold testers, drones, gas leak detectors, electrical meters, moisture meters, mobile devices and more.
What infrared thermal imaging can find.
Each of our inspections includes infrared thermal imaging as a standard part of our service. This highly advanced, non-invasive technology reveals hidden parts of your home that can’t be found using conventional methods. A room or home that appears to be fine may have several issues hiding behind the scenes, including moisture intrusion, energy loss, plumbing leaks, and electrical problems. Let us find these invisible issues before they become problems, so you can keep your family safe and make your decision with confidence.
- Heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors
- Damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems
- Air-conditioner compressor leaks
- Under-fastening and/or missing framing members
- Structural defects that can lead to energy loss
- Broken seals in double-paned windows
- Temperature differential
- Plumbing leaks
- Hidden roof leaks that can cause serious damage
- Missing, damaged and/or wet insulation
- Water and moisture intrusion around penetrations and at the foundation and building envelope that could lead to structural damage and mold
- Circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement
- Overloaded and undersized circuits
- Overheated electrical equipment and components
- Electrical faults before they cause a fire
- Possible pest infestation, such as rats, mice and other larger pests
Any issues found are dependent on the conditions at the time of the inspection. Issues can occur after the inspection or may not be visible due to conditions present at the time of inspection.

Fiberoptic Endoscope Inspection Cameras
You can’t perform a proper sewer-line inspection or air–duct inspection without an endoscopic camera. Our advanced equipment can find even the hardest-to-spot problems, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in the process. We have fiberoptic color cameras that self–level, record, and show distance.
Endoscopic cameras can find:
- Root intrusion
- Crushed or damaged pipes
- Leaks, uneven or “belly” conditions in pipes
- Debris, clogs, and obstructions
- Previously unknown or damaged/obstructed valves
Mold Testing Inspection
DJI Mavic Zoom Drone
See the entire property in stunning detail. It flies up to 400 feet high to view multi-story roofs, yards, and properties in exquisite detail.
Examples the drone helped us catch.
Full Roof Replacement
Drone provided access to an otherwise too steep and unsafe roof due to height and loose shingles. Drone captured and documented defects that indicated a full roof replacement.
Hail Damage and Leaks
Drone provided access to an inaccessible roof that was unsafe due to height and pitch. Drone captured and documented significant hail damage and deterioration as well as deterioration and leaking at the pipe jack boots.
Carbon Monoxide Meters
When it comes to your family’s safety, never settle. Our fireplace inspection is done by a chimney sweep who uses a camera to inspect the flue parts which would otherwise not be visible. They also use gas detectors and carbon monoxide meters to make sure your fireplace flue isn’t leaking, and that odorless, invisible, and deadly carbon monoxide isn’t getting in the air your family breathes.
Electrical Meters & Tester
Our electrical meters check voltage, while the tester determines proper wiring of outlets.
We use two moisture meters: 1.) Pin-style to physically penetrate the surface to take a reading; and 2.) pinless style to measure moisture content down from the surface. We can detect moisture buildup inside walls and ceilings to determine if damage has occurred, or if it is likely to in the future.
We document the entire inspection process on our mobile devices, which allows us to provide you an electronic, same-day inspection report that’s clear, comprehensive, and easy to understand.
