Terry underwent his Level 1 Thermography training from ITC in 2015, and has been using it to good affect ever since. Thermographic inspection services are offered as an add-on to a regular residential inspection, where the results are included in the inspection report. These services are also offered as a stand-alone inspection. Using an infrared imager under the right conditions, it is possible for a knowledgeable thermographer to detect electrical, heating, moisture, building insulation, and air leakage issues that would otherwise go undetected during even the most rigorous visual-only inspection.
Hours of telephone availability are generally from 8:00 AM to 9:30 PM weekdays, 9:00 AM to 9:30 PM on weekends, and voicemails can be left outside of those hours. Emails can obviously be sent at any time, and may be responded to even outside of these stated business hours.
Cash, cheque, interac email transfer, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express accepted. However, during this COVID-19 pandemic, interac email and credit card payments are the much preferred options.
