Infrared Roof Moisture Survey

Infrared Roof Moisture Survey for Roofing Systems is used world-wide by building managers, facility managers, property managers, plant engineers and government agencies to accurately locate and quantify moisture trapped within commercial roofing assemblies. The infrared detection technique can be used effectively on virtually all types of low slope roofing systems. During the day, the sun radiates energy onto the commercial roof and into the roof substrate. In the evening, the roof radiates the heat back into the atmosphere. This process is called radiational cooling. Areas of the commercial roof that are of a higher mass (wet) retain this heat much longer than that of the lower mass (dry) areas of the roof. Infrared imagers can detect the heat and “see” the warmer, higher mass areas, during the occurrence of uneven heat dissipation from the roof. This is an ideal way to pinpoint what areas of the roof are retaining moisture which can lead to future problems. Infrared thermography is a proven scientific method for evaluating roofing condition and locating hard to locate roof moisture problem areas. Our professional infrared thermography roof inspections provide the in-depth, unbiased data that owners and property managers need to protect their costly roof systems.

When the Infrared Roof Moisture Survey Should be Used

1. Prior to Final Acceptance and Payment for a new roofing system.
2. Before the roof warranty expires.
3. Before acquiring real estate.
4. Before re-roofing over an existing roof assembly.
5. For early detection of roof moisture problems in order to minimize long term roof repair costs.
6. Before preparing your budget request for roof repairs
7. Whenever roof moisture or leaks occur.
