I’m looking for advice from all the IR experts here.
I did an IR inspection this past January (01/09) on a recently remodeled home for a customer. Prior to the inspection the client indicated he was unable to get the interior temperature above 62 degrees (F) when the outside temps were much below freezing. After thorough IR scanning, it became increasingly evident the contractor ignored the details of properly installing the insulation, house wrap, and siding resulting in excessive air penetration into the dwelling.
Based on the findings of this IR inspection, my client will be initiating legal action against the contractor this week.
So here is the question: Is anyone aware of any specific legal cases involving IR technology being used to detect any of the hidden defects
(insulation, house wrap) mentioned? Anyone aware of any attorneys that have handled IR cases?
This is likely going to be the first such case for my clients’ attorney.
Thank you in advance for any help.
