Certified Level III Thermographer
“The Most Qualified Thermographer in the Northwest!”
Infrared thermal imaging equipment is currently being sold all over the world to individuals with absolutely no training or experience in building science thermography.
Infrared equipment is not a Polaroid where point and shoot will yield usable information without the knowledge of heat transfer, infrared science and building construction.
Brent Foster was first a successful certified building inspector for 13 years and has evaluated thousands of residential, multi family and commercial buildings throughout the state of Washington. With that background, Brent made the decision to specialize in building science thermography.
Brent Foster first earned the Level I Thermographer designation. This is the first level of real credentials in the field of thermography. Brent took this certification further and completed the training and testing and he is now certified by the (ITC) Infrared Training Center as a Level III Building Science Thermographer.
As a Level III Thermographer, Brent Foster is the best professional in the region to perform your needed infrared scans, investigations, testify on your behalf, and discover issues that others with less experience completely overlook.
