Be Safe, Be Dry with DryScan – Specialist in Infrared Solutions

DryScan is Auckland’s premier building inspection company for new, old, residential and light commercial properties. Specialists in building leaks and moisture related issues, DryScan’s success has been built off 4 key strengths:

  • Being results focused with clear and simple reporting
  • Using internationally recognised best of breed technology
  • Depth of experience with over 45 years in the industry
  • Provide peace of mind for buyers and sellers.

We’ve found that building leaks or moisture related issues are often passed from owner to owner, either because the house wasn’t checked before purchase or if the report missed a vital issue.

Which is where DryScan comes in, we’ll find the cause and recommends a plan of action. That’s our guarantee.

So what makes DryScan special?

We’ve lived it. Having bought and lived through the horrors of a leaky home, DryScan’s Director Bryce Hall knows too well the true cost which absent or poor reporting can cause.  Bryce has since dedicated his professional life to ensuring this isn’t repeated for other buyers and sellers. And has joined forces as a member of NZIBI, The National Body of Professional Residential Building Inspectors, to ensure this is the case.

For him, this is more than a job.

DryScan guarantee’s you Peace of Mind, and we back this up through our Professional Indemnity Insurance for Diagnosing Leaky Buildings.

All this culminates in a comprehensive building report. Our Results Based reporting approach means we don’t simply leave you with open ended statement either, but we offer all the information and knowledge we can so you’re empowered to make your decision for when or if a problem is found.

We’ve gone the extra mile to ensure the reports are easy to read and follow by adopting one of Europe’s top reporting methods, so you won’t ever be left confused.

Our high resolution thermal imaging infrared technology shows “what the eye cannot see”, and with over 10 years in the inspection business and nearly 40 years in the building industry, DryScan is truly one of the leading and independent building inspection companies in New Zealand.
