If you have ever run into a problem on one of your older home remodeling jobs that required you to demolish a wall to locate a problem, you may have wondered if there was a better way. This is especially true if you have to spend time and money re-building the structure after the problem was solved. You may also have the problem of antique preservation in some older homes. Learn more about the benefits of using fiberscope technology in your construction business.

Fiberscopes Can help You Diagnose Old Chimney Problems In Older Homes

In some older homes, homeowners want to use an old fireplace. While the fireplace may look in good shape, going inside it could tell another story. Before you give a homeowner a go on using their fireplace, examining the chimney's interior is a good idea. Using a fiberscope, also known as a borescope, is the best way to get the closest look inside a chimney, especially one that is old and may need interior mortar repairs. The images you receive from your fiberscope inside an old chimney can help you see little holes in the mortar, any insect issues, and animal nests in the nooks and crannies in an odd-shaped chimney. When it comes to a family's safety while using an old fireplace, the images provided by a fiberscope can be hugely important.

They Can Save You Time And Money Even In The Dark

Some tasks you may be faced with while renovating an older home may include things in the basement or root cellar. For example, if a root cellar has been left unchecked and roots have grown through several of the stones or rocks in its walls, it could dangerous to work in because of the likelihood of a cave-in. Using a fiberscope to examine the interior of a dark root cellar is a good idea before you or any of crew go in to make necessary repairs for it to be usable. Bear in mind that most fiberscopes are designed to be waterproof and extremely durable, so the dampness and risk of falling rocks in an old root cellar would be nothing to worry about.

The investment you make in a fiberscope for your construction business is smart, especially if you work primarily on older homes that require high levels of material preservation. Fiberscopes are easy to use, so you do not have to worry about time and money being spent on special training courses. Using a fiberscope in your construction is one of the best ways to keep up with or stay ahead of your competition.
