Roof Insulation – The Double Edged Sword

Roof insulation can be a double edged sword.

Roof insulation can help maintain comfortable liveable temperatures in a building saving you electricity that would have been required to run air conditioning systems but it can also hide termite damage.

Thermal cameras can help find some of this concealed termite activity in a roof void.

If you are going to get your house inspected for termites it is critical that you insist that the inspector use a quality thermal camera.

There are a lot of inspectors in South East Queensland running around with entry level $1,000 toys.

When it comes to thermal cameras and termite inspections no statement could be more true “you get what you pay for”.

The home is most peoples biggest investment, it really is worth the money to have it inspected at least once a year.

Can you imagine the financial devastation if you had to sell the family home for land value only because termites had destroyed your home.

The following photos show active termite damage we have found in roof void areas with our thermal camera.
