Quality Assurance

IRT Surveys can provide you with a thermographic survey during an external wall insulation install. The image below reveals a 2 bed semi-detached domestic property before and after the  removal of old timber frontage, application of EWI and  loft insulation. 

Thermographic imaging and analysis  provided within our reports is easy to follow and highlights the clear energy saving benefits of EWI on a property. Because IRT surveys offer a completely impartial service, you and your clients can have peace of mind that the images show evidence of good workmanship.

Fault Finding

Thermal images, within the footer below, were taken a short while after the installation of an EWI system. They reveal warmer temperatures, depicted in red and yellow colours,  the most significant of which indicate likely points of  moisture ingress at points around the junction detailing.  

An IRT Survey is able to assess for failures in the insulation detailing across the entirety of a property, which can allow moisture to bypass the insulation and track along the support system behind. Infrared can show the exact location of any defects and allows for a focused repair operation to be carried out before it becomes and issue.

Cold bridging is a common issue where external wall insulation has been applied. IRT surveys can also detect and highlight and locations where cold bridging is apparent and can compromise the thermal benefits of the system.

 

What Else Can IRT do for you?

  • Survey and analyse large quantities of properties to give estimated CO2 and cost savings upon any energy saving measures applied. 
  • Recommend, where applicable, that a repeat survey be carried out  before the end of the retention period to ensure that all issues are addressed and no further issues are present.
  • Available for domestic and commercial properties.
