Drones: Used for inspecting hard to access roofs, chimneys and other inaccessible areas, providing detailed aerial views without the need for ladders or scaffolding

Digital Reporting software: Specialized software to create detailed inspection reports quickly, with high image photos, videos, and annotations

Laser Measurement tools: Used to identify discrepancies in walls and floors that might suggest structural problems

Environmental Sampling Tools: Various tools and sensors for detecting mold and other environmental hazards that may affect indoor air quality
