Thermal Imaging

One of our goals at Insight Property Inspections is to educate the prospective real estate buyer and their agent regarding some of the structural and mechanical issues that may exist with a particular property. Our state-of-the-art advanced thermography equipment gives our clients a much more detailed account of what is going on with a property by detecting leaks and deficiencies that may become pricey investments in the future. It's no wonder more and more potential house owners are requesting a thermographic inspection. Here's how it works: Infrared cameras show temperature differences over entire surfaces. The measurement of house façades and walls is based on the temperature differences of the house inside, outside and the wall structure.

But much depends on the correct camera setting and, last but not least, the building expertise of the camera user. Our inspectors are highly qualified with the use of this technology and have produced hundreds of quality thermal images guaranteed to provide the client with informative and accurate information to assist them in making informed decisions. The State of Nevada does not require home inspectors to review the home with thermal imaging, but Home inspectors are permitted to exceed the standards predicated by the State. However most inspectors still don't use this technology because of the expense and extra time it takes to conduct the inspection. At Insight Property Inspections, there is no additional charge for this service. Providing quality and reliable service is our goal. Allow us an opportunity to serve you.

Heating Systems/Central Cooling Systems (HVAC)

The main purposes of a Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) system are to help maintain good indoor air quality through adequate ventilation with filtration and to provide thermal comfort. The choice and design of the HVAC system can also affect many other high performance goals, including water consumption and acoustics. A well designed system can be cost efficient and will provide abundant comfort year around. Our inspector is well informed on codes and standards of these systems. Several of the components inspected are filter efficiency, air distribution, air intake and exhaust, registry controls and energy ratings. In addition to the standard state and local building codes, our inspector may be able to provide tips to reduce consumption and help home buyers save on these energy intensive components. We make it our business to dedicate our time and resources to educate our clients and to provide the best information on the property. Informed buying is smart buying!

Roof Coverings, Framing and Attic

The roof may be the single most overlooked component of a home. At Insight Property Inspections, our inspector will thoroughly inspect the roof, attic and framing to provide a detailed assessment of any irregularities. Suggestions for energy conversation and maintenance routines will also be provided to help homeowners leverage new eco-friendly cost savings technology.

The windy, sunny summer days in the Las Vegas area can be hard on roofs. Wind damage can lead to leaky roofs and costly water damage when tiles or shingles are cracked or blown away and the underlayment is compromised. Roofs require regular maintenance like any house appliance. Whether the roof features concrete tiles or asphalt shingles it should be inspected on a regular basis. Insulation and framing should be checked regularly. Leakage or sparse coverage can result in costly repairs and high energy bills. Our inspector will use thermal imaging to provide the best inspection possible in these areas.


Inspecting pools/spas properly and accurately providing clients with valuable information on possible structural or mechanical issues is what most home inspectors cover in their reports. Here at Insight Property Inspections, we will go beyond this to educate our clients about local codes, and provide safety and maintenance tips. While pools and spas are enjoyable retreats in the Las Vegas valley, safety should be first and foremost on every homeowners mind. To prevent accidents local codes have been put into place to provide pool safety. Our inspector will note any violations and review codes with potential buyers. Perimeter fences, fence gates, the use of pool covers and alarms will be noted and recommendations will be provided to ensure codes are being met and a safe environment is provided. Pools and Spas make living in a desert climate bearable when temperatures soar well above 100 degrees. However, the maintenance can be overwhelming to a novice. Potential homeowners should not be hesitant in taking on the responsibility themselves, however as an alternative there are many licensed professionals to choose from. Should the homeowner choose to take on the responsibility themselves and before adopting a cleaning routine, first on the list should be familiarizing themselves with the pool and spa's equipment. This will begin with the home inspection. Our inspector will review the operational systems with the prospective buyer including motors, pumps, heaters,filters and plumbing lines. The pool pump(s) are the hardest working piece of equipment, it should be run at a minimum of 6 hours a day. Motors drive the circulation system, it converts electrical energy into mechanical energy used to operate the pump(s). Filters need regular monitoring and cleaning. Our inspector will provide tips on what to look for when these may not be functioning properly. We make it our business to educate our clients and to provide the best information on the property to help them make informed decisions.
