There are instances in which we cannot utilize a drone:
Rain, storm, or high wind conditions.
Heavy tree or power line coverage.
Federal no fly zones.
At any time the inspector feels that it is unsafe or unnecessary to utilize a drone.
NOTE: If the drone cannot be used during the inspection due to the above conditions, the inspector will not return to the home free of charge. There will be a $125 fee to revisit the home when conditions are favorable for drone flight, upon request.
Limitations of a thermal camera:
A thermal camera does not see through walls. The camera detects temperature differential which will alert the inspector to a problem such as a leak. If no temperature differential exists, the camera will not detect an issue.
The camera will not be used to scan every portion of the home and we are not doing an energy efficiency evaluation on the home. The camera is only a tool that the inspector may or may not use in order to assist in the inspection or verify findings. The camera is utilized at the discretion of the inspector.
