We detect and document roof moisture with infrared thermography
Infrared imaging is a proven method for identifying and defining moisture problems in your flat roof. This will enable you to develop a more sophisticated roof asset management program, make more informed decisions regarding roof budgets and will help you plan repairs.
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.
By using infrared thermography, an Infrared Imaging Services roof inspection will find the trapped moisture and mark the wet areas so that repairs can be made surgically. This can save you money because the entire roof may not have to replace! By marking paint directly on the roof, repair areas can be seen by anyone standing on the roofs after the survey is performed.
