We are concerned with protecting the environment for future generations. We promote energy conservation, preservation of healthy materials and use of environmentally friendly materials for renovation work under our supervision. With infrared thermography, it is possible to detect air infiltrations, thermal bridges, lack of or humid insulation in walls and roofs. By minimizing heat losses or air infiltrations, energy consumption is reduced to a minimum.
Infrared thermography prior to re-roofing involves locating and replacing only humid components on the roof (insulation, support panels, etc.). In addition to substantial savings, preservation of healthy materials avoids overflowing landfill sites.
