Bring your home inspections to another level with an Infrared Inspection. Using a camera that detects and visually displays temperature differences in/on materials allows the inspector to see additional information that would not be detected by the naked eye. If there is a temperature change anywhere in the room it will be detected and displayed with the range of temperatures it is composed of.

In the photos above you can see the areas that are showing a leaking roof and how the water is being dispersed over the ceiling and wall areas below.

We offer three services that allow you to select the level of inspection you prefer, so you can have peace of my mind about buying the home you love. Your custom report will show detailed images and descriptions of key areas of concern, and point out specific problem areas. We also work with Sewer Scoping Companies so if your looking to have that done all at once we can schedule and coordinate with them.

Our Testimonials

I found Boulder Home Inspector to be very professional. They communicated well leading up to the inspection. They arrived on time to start the inspection. They were considerate in asking permission before inspecting something or entered a space. They finished without a trace left behind. The report they generated was top notch. They have a very professional website with all the details of the inspection and you can download the report from there. It’s very thorough and easy to read. I’d highly recommend them for home inspections.

K-Jubek, Residential Home Owner

Boulder home inspector scheduled a convenient time between my husband and my crazy schedules. They did a thorough examination of all parts of mechanical and structural that they could access. When done they walked us through the house and explained what they had seen in each area giving suggestion if needed in an area that could use an upgrade or maintenance to improve the property value and our family’s safety. Our inspection report contained all that they had found and offered the possible action items for each section(that I might not have remembered after a whole house walk through) in clear easy to understand language. Thank you – two thumbs up.
