Infrared imaging is a proven method for identifying and defining moisture problems in your roof. This enables you to make informed decisions about repair or replacement. Correct leaky areas without the need to replace your entire roof.
As water enters your roof through the waterproofing layer(s) by tears, cuts, poorly sealed penetrations, failed flashings and caps, the insulation below can become laden with water and trapped in the roof substrate. If left in disrepair, the concrete deck absorbs or traps water, the wood deck rots. The metal deck rusts, and water intrudes into the building’s interior. Infrared thermography is useful in locating these moisture intrusions.
We create detailed, high-quality and easy to understand reports documenting roof moisture. Roof professionals can then use the information to verify the wet areas and write specifications to repair the roof.
By using infrared thermography, we find the trapped moisture and mark the wet areas so that repairs can be made surgically. This can save you money because you may not have to replace the roof as soon. By marking paint directly on the roof, repair areas can be seen by anyone standing on the roofs after the survey is performed.
