Find a Leak – We are Level 1 certified thermographers to ASTM standards – Cert. # 7484

Find a leakNot only do we carry out thermal imaging inspections on a full time basis in Auckland, in 2009, the director of the company (Dean Cowley), authored a very popular thermal imaging manual for other house inspectors which is now used by over 380 infrared inspection companies in 8 different countries. He has also appeared live on NZ talkback radio.

Dean is also a Certified Narcotics Testing Officer (For pre-purchase Meth testing)

Find A Leak – Here’s our point of difference:

Find A Leak are independent inspectors. What this means to you, is that we don’t have a ‘vested interest’ in finding problems. You will get what you pay for, an inspection as it should be… not a sales pitch to ‘upsell you’ further services at the end of the inspection.  

In addition to servicing home owners and investors with inspections on combined assets to the tune of $500 million +, Find A Leak  have recently provided commercial infrared work for regional councils, one of NZ’s largest shopping chains, public companies, schools, insurance companies, builders, architects, offshore oil rigs, many reputable firms throughout NZ… and also the homes of some ‘well known’ faces in NZ such as TV Presenters, an All Blacks Coach, the personal homes of NZ rich list clients and more.

Infrared thermal imaging is our business and our passion. No matter what the size of the job, be it a home leak detection, pre-purchase moisture inspection or a commercial electrical predictive maintenance program, you’ll get 100% dedication and attention to detail each and every time.

We are certified thermographers, specialising in the following:

  • Thermal imaging houses for a variety of reasons; such as:
  • Pre purchase moisture testing
  • Isolated Leak detection –  Track, trace & pinpoint
  • Testing for leaky building syndrome – Non invasive only
  • Leak reports
  • Electrical thermographic surveys.
