Infrared Roof Inspections – Springtime is Best

Infrared Roof InspectionWith onset of pleasant Spring days, the severity of Superstorm Sandy and the harshness of winter are fading memories. Left undetected, the damage caused by severe weather or dramatic swings in the weather can lead to premature roof failure. An infrared roof inspection can detect evidence of problems before they get out of hand.

Infrared inspections can detect evidence of latent moisture within the roofing system often before leaks become evident in the building.

Infrared Roof Inspection

The best candidates for infrared roof inspection surveys are flat or low slope roofs where the insulation is located between the roof deck and the membrane and is in direct contact with the underside of the membrane. Applicable constructions are roofs with either a smooth or gravel surface, built-up or single-ply membranes.  For smooth-surfaced roofs, a short wave imager will provide more accurate results especially if the roof is painted with a reflective coating. All infrared data should be verified by performing an invasive core sample or moisture meter reading.

Provide us with the square footage and composition of your roof and we can provide you with a quotation for an Infrared Roof Survey of your facility’s roof.
