We detect and document roof moisture with infrared thermography

Why use Infrared Thermography on Flat Roofs?
Infrared imaging is a proven method for identifying and defining moisture problems in your 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.

By using infrared thermography, we find the trapped moisture and mark the wet areas on the roof with marking paint, so that roof repairs can be made surgically - without the tremendous expense of replacing the entire roof.

This can save you a tremendous amount of money!

Here's how it works...During the day, the sun radiates energy onto the roof and into the roof substrate, and then at night, the roof radiates the heat back into outer space. This is called radiational cooling. Areas of the roof that are of a higher mass (wet) retain this heat longer than that of the lower mass (dry) areas.

Infrared imagers can detect this heat and "see" the warmer, higher mass areas, during the "window" of uneven heat dissipation. Heat loss and other IR services can be performed at the same time.
