Infrared Surveys of Single-Ply Roofs

We are frequently asked if an Infrared Survey can be performed on a roof with a single-ply or reflective membrane.  The answer is “YES, IF…” the survey is performed under the acceptable conditions with the correct imager.

The way to deal with the reflectivity of smooth roof membranes is to utilize a thermal imager with short wave (2 to 5.6 micron) spectral response. This will help to eliminate reflections from the roof and can increase inspection accuracy.
