Student Discussion: How to Inspect for Moisture Intrusion Course

I noticed that flir has a moisture meter that has a form of a thermal camera on it. Is this more detailed in terms of detecting moisture or is it not necessary and just as good as a regular thermal camera? I am referring to the Flir MR160 vs something like a Flir C2.

We get a lot of wet basement up here in Wisconsin, we find a lot of old stone basements on old farm houses

I find bath fans, kitchen range hoods that are vented into the attic, it causes a lot of moisture into the attic and stains in the roof rafters and roof sheathing. Realtors don’t like it when I inform them that it has to go to the exterior of the house.

The moisture intrusion course is very informative.

Starting course!!

Would the thermal inspection be an additional charge? Or is it standard to include that in a typical home inspection?

Starting the moisture course.
