Many people looking for leak detection services often call in the wrong contractor for the type of leak they have. For example, if you have a roof leak you may not need a specialist leak detection company, because a roofer can generally get up there and see where the problem is originating from almost immediately. If you have a tile roof then you should call a company experienced with tiles and can detect leaks fast, and if you have a long run iron roof, look for a company that deals with those products specifically, otherwise it may end up being a two step process to fix the problem.
Detect Leaks Using a Specialist Contractor:
If you think the water may be in your walls and it could be a more than meets the eye, then you should get a leak specialist who has appropriate equipment to trace and detect leaks. One question you should ask the company (over the phone), is if they are independent or whether they repair their leaks also.
Biased Inspections from some builders who detect leaks
Some companies actually use this infrared imaging service to generate and sell more repair work (after they detect leaks in your home)… and this may not be the type of company you are wanting at your house for the initial inspection. An independent company is always going to be more favourable to you because they don’t have a vested interest in detecting problems that don’t actually exist, therefore costing you more money to repair.
The option you have to detect leaks is a moisture meter… but you do need to find the right one for your application.
