Our cameras have the ability to see what the human eye can’t, using part of the light spectrum we cannot see. The cameras are able to “see” heat at temperatures lower than 500 degrees and it electronically converts this infrared radiation the heat emits, into a state that is readily visible to us. This allows us to read temperature differences in the walls and ceilings of your home which in turn enables us to identify objects such as the bracing and fixings within your wall and more importantly moisture and leaks that may not necessarily be visible to the naked eye. Dryscan Infrared then uses these images to produce a comprehensive moisture ingress report tailored to suit your needs.

History-Drybuild/Dryscan pioneered this leading edge technology in New Zealand to become the first building inspection company and the first franchised building inspection company to adopt purpose built infrared thermal imaging cameras for use in building inspections. The idea was to pinpoint the exact source of the moisture/leaks to enable an exact targeted area for repair, thus reducing the need for tradesmen to remove vast areas of cladding, pull down entire walls, uplift decks or remove entire windows in their search for the cause.

For many home owners, the process of investigating whether a dwelling has moisture problems (commonly referred to as “leaky building syndrome”) can often be a time consuming, expensive and invasive operation. However, by being able to assess these structures by non-invasive (“no holes”) methods without cutting into walls and floors and potentially causing further structural damage can in most cases save the homeowner hundreds if not thousands of dollars in investigative and remedial work.
