Thermal building inspections from Innovative Construction Solutions will offer you insight into the condition of your home in Marco Island, FL. We can evaluate your home’s thermal signature to check for any defects in the building envelope, no matter how small. With this information, we can make suggestions for maintenance and repairs that will head off significant problems in the future.
Let us find the small leak in your roof, portion of failed insulation, or ill-performing system before these issues have the opportunity to continue to worsen, costing much more to repair after the entire system fails.
A home’s exterior – from the roof to the slab and everything in between is the primary protection for the home’s structural elements. Without a quality building “envelope,” the frame, finishes, flooring, and every other element are vulnerable to the elements; the heating and cooling system can’t work efficiently; and the life of the home will be greatly shortened.
Allow the experts here at Innovative Construction Solutions to perform periodic inspections of these elements to ensure that all is well and offer solutions when we identify problems.
When a section of the building envelope fails, you can expect to see a range of symptoms including:
- Leaks along the walls, windows, doors, or roofing
- Frequent condensation
- Finishes and cladding stains
- Mildew or mold odors
- Observed damage

Thermal Imaging Evaluations
The use of FLIR thermal imaging cameras allow Innovative Construction Solutions to check for gaps in coverage by measuring the thermal energy profile throughout the home. Changes can indicate breaks in the building envelope, and the extent of the damage can even be seen via this technology.
By evaluating the extent of the damage through a thermal imaging camera, we can diagnose the problem precisely, without causing damage. Additionally, we can tell how much damage has happened and make suggestions for repair.
A thermal inspection provides a wide range of advantages. Weaknesses in your home will be found, so they can be fixed. The earlier any problem is fixed, the better.When problems in the coverage of the building envelope are allowed to continue, they will lead to utter destruction of the home.
