Hello,

I'm looking for a decent laser pointer to use on inspections. I'm trying to find one that works in daylight and on surfaces such as cladding, or brick or roofs.

I've tried a few cheap ones and the beams don't always show up, especially on exterior and in daylight.

Wondering if anyone uses one that they know works well.

Thanks!

You'll likely find they don't come out well in photos, have you tried just drawing or dropping an arrow graphic over the picture in your report?

I do use graphics in the reports. My intent is to use it to better to describe to clients what I may be seeing when we are at the inspection. Especially when looking at exterior and roofs out of reach.

Use your infrared temp gun.

I was just going to suggest that...Or buy one and now you have two tools in one
