Tools of the Trade
Don understands that the very best way to inspect your future home is through visual examination, along with using some industry-specific tools. The following is a list of each tool that Cincinnati Certified Home Inspections uses.
Aerial Drone Photography
Our aerial drone is called into action for each full inspection free of charge! We will capture images of your roof to determine whether it’s in good enough shape to walk.
We provide free thermal imaging to anyone who schedules a full inspection. This handy tool enables us to see leaks and a lack of insulation inside your walls. Additionally, it can find hot spots and provide some info about pest infestations.
The last thing you want in your house is accumulations of moisture and mold. Therefore, we use our moisture meter to look for any indications that there’s a problem.
Carbon Monoxide Detector
Save your family from this deadly killer by allowing us to use a carbon monoxide detector inside your future home.
Gas Leak Detector
We can root out tiny gas leaks that you can’t otherwise smell with our gas leak detector. This is especially beneficial for your hot water heater.
