At Van Balen Home Inspections we know that for many people their condominium is their largest investment. Hidden faults, problems and issues can degrade the value of the condo and lower your investments value.
Having your condo inspected can save you costly repairs and renovations due to a number of potential hazards. Using our Thermal Imaging technology, we can detect problem areas in your condo before major damage occurs. This can mean protection from high winds, termites, and mold.
High winds can permeate your doors, windows, and roof causing moisture and debris to enter your condo. Thermal imaging can find the areas most susceptible to high winds allowing corrections to be made before a major catastrophe occurs. Having your condo inspected by a certified inspector can protect your investment and your family.
Wind Mitigation Inspection covers the following:
- Roof Covering and Date of installation
- Roof deck attachment – nails, screws or staples along with the size and spacing
- Roof to wall attachment- Nails, clips or straps
- Roof shape and gable end bracing
- Wall construction types- usually frame or block
- Secondary Water barriers- Self adhering polymer modified bitumen or foam
- Opening protection- Impact tested and approved products, not wind-resistant or pressure tested
