Reveal Inspection Helps Residential and Commercial Property Owners Find Problems Not Readily Visible

New Company Uses Infrared Technology to Pinpoint Energy Loss, Water Leaks and Structural Flaws

WESTLAND, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 9, 2006 -- Finding the source of a water leak or energy loss can be less of a mystery to homeowners and commercial property owners, according to Ken Shay, an ITC (infra-red technology) certified inspector and founder of Reveal Inspection.

Shay recently launched Reveal Inspection, with the assistance of his son Jason Shay, to help homeowners, realtors, contractors and commercial property owners uncover flaws not readily visible to the naked eye. The company uses the latest in non-invasive, non destructive technology to inspect, record and analyze building conditions.

"We use FLIR Systems thermacams to pinpoint and record infrared images of problem areas," said Shay, who has more than 30 years experience in new construction and renovations. "We also use digital cameras to compare and document the inspected areas."

In addition to identifying sources of energy loss and water leaks, the company's inspectors can also identify structural flaws, missing or inadequate insulation, electrical problems and even rodent and pest invasion.

"By providing detailed analysis and inspection reports, we give new home buyers peace of mind and home sellers a competitive advantage," added Shay. "Essentially, we eliminate the guess work."

The thermacams are especially useful to locate the sources of water leakage or moisture before too much damage is caused. "How many people notice bubbling or cracks without knowing the source of the problem?" said Shay. "We can help them."

Reveal Inspection uses the same technology to identify similar problems for commercial properties. Much of the company's work focuses on water leakage from classic flat roofs, which are typical construction for buildings in this area. Inspectors can help find damaged portions of the roof so they can be repaired without replacing the entire roof.

Infrared images and details of how these high tech inspections work are available on the company's web site Appointments can be scheduled by calling 734-405-2444 or by emailing
