Technical Support and Training Services
While Tailored Foam of Florida’s primary business in insulation contracting, we provide a variety of technical support and training services related to insulation. We provide plans take-off and estimating for projects of all sizes, infrared thermography services for installation quality assurance and existing insulation diagnostic review, continuing education for architects, and insulation related sales training for home builders.
We believe Tailored Foam of Florida is the only foam insulation company that uses infrared thermography as a key element in project quality assurance. Infrared thermography is fast and non-invasive. For existing buildings, it eliminates the need for destructive investigation. Moisture problems and hot spots where insulation has settled (or never existed) are easy to identify quickly and accurately.
How infrared thermography works. Instead of detecting visible light like an ordinary camera, infrared imaging cameras detect the heat emitted by surfaces, including the surfaces of roofs, walls and ceilings. Inspections with an infrared camera offer a fast, non-invasive way to find both wet and hot spots in a building structure. with images of a home or comercial building’s surfaces, we can tell where insulation is either deficient or missing altogether.
Because moist and wet building materials tend to be cooler than surrounding dry surfaces, infrared thermography is also a useful tool for finding water leaks and damp or soaked building materials. Moisture buildup in a structure, especially in a humid climate like Florida’s, is often an indicator of mold.
We can help you dramatically reduce water damage restoration and environmental/mold sampling costs. In particular, remediation areas and structures can be targeted precisely, eliminating guesswork and unnecessary demolition. Infrared thermography minimizes disturbance of daily activities, allowing homeowners and businesses to carry on their ordinary activities without interruption.
Infrared thermography is an ideal tool to document water damaged structures for insurance claims, both before and after repairs are made.
Tailored Foam of Florida’s experienced estimating team can handle any foam insulation estimating request. From single room residential additions to 200,000 square foot commercial buildings, we perform timely take-offs and estimates for any project—often the same day for residential and smaller commercial projects. Tailored Foam of Florida subscribes to the major construction information services to ensure that our construction cost data are always current.
