At CBL Home Inspection Service LLC we are always expanding and upgrading our home inspection tools to perform a thorough inspection for you the homebuyer. Although certain components of the home aren't visible or accessible such as the interior wall or ceilings structures or the interior components of the utilities we use a Thermal Camera, Borescope Camera, Moisture meters, Carbon Monoxide and combustible Gas detection equipment, Electrical testing equipment to provide a thorough, accurate and detailed inspection report. In addition a Thermal Camera can identify water penetration or moisture accumulation in the interior cavities of the floor, walls, ceiling and roof structure before becoming visible on the interior of the home.
