Problems always seem to occur where and when you least expect them. This holds true for every aspect of life, from your health to your relationships to your workplace. However, all too often we do nothing about a problem until it surfaces in ways we can’t help but notice. If you’ve ever dealt with a roof leak or any other roofing problem, you know the stress and effort involved in getting it repaired. However, there is a way to detect problems with your roof before they escalate: through an infrared roof moisture survey. You may not have heard of such an inspection procedure, but they are worth investing in for the well-being of your property and your peace of mind.
What is an Infrared Roof Moisture Survey?
It’s one of the most non-intrusive procedures you can use for a building inspection. Infrared roof moisture surveys evaluate the temperatures circulating throughout your facility and create a report based on these findings. If the insulation in your roofing is wet, it will pull in far more heat than it should, especially at night. A roof moisture survey will be able to pick up on this abnormal amount of heat, allowing inspectors to identify problem areas and to notify you of the sections that need the most attention.
Infrared Roof Moisture Surveys Are Cost-Effective
As the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. While a roof moisture survey may sound expensive, its cost will never compare to what you will have to pay to repair damages to your roofing. Roof moisture surveys are conducted in a safe, non-invasive manner. They give you the full scope of your roof’s condition so you can make the most informed decision about what needs to be done for your building’s maintenance. A professional thermography inspection will help lengthen the lifespan of your current roofing materials. I can also provide clues to any potential problems before they degrade any further.
What Will Happen If I Don’t Get a Roof Moisture Inspection?
If you don’t get a roof inspection performed on a regular basis, you risk having to replace your entire roof due to soggy insulation. Insulation that has become too wet can also lead to other problems besides a costly roof repair, such as:
- Extra weight for your facility to support
- Potential harm to the interior of your facility that can damage your equipment and even cause accidents for your employees
- An increased rate of decay for your facility’s structural deck
- Higher energy bills, leading to additional expenses
- The growth of mold in your facility, which can spread in the air and create a breathing risk
