5 Different Types of Commercial Roofing Surveys We Offer

All our surveys come with a free quote, so that you know exactly what work needs to be done, if any.

So, to help you decide what kind of survey you need, here are 5 different types of commercial roofing surveys we offer…

Thermal Roof Surveys

Any commercial roofing or industrial roofing system is unfortunately as risk of developing a leak, so it can be worth investing in effective infrared technology to detect any early. Thermal roof surveys are non-destructive and can easily identify any anomalies, highlighting any defective roof areas or potentially dangerous faults. This time of roof survey works effectively with flat roofs as well, working to locate any trapped moisture within the roof membrane that could lead to structural damage, rot and increased energy usage.

Drone Roof Inspection

This type of roofing survey is still relatively new, but drone roof inspections are extremely useful for being able to analyse areas that would’ve been previously inaccessible. Any areas of your roofing system that are difficult to get to, unsafe or otherwise unable to be serviced using more traditional roof surveying methods, won’t be a problem for a drone. Older buildings in particular or those at a great height can benefit from a professional drone roof inspection.

Asbestos Testing

You should always avoid coming into contact with loosened asbestos, as it has strong link to a number of fatal lung diseases. Many buildings built before the year 2000 still have the material in their walls or the lining of the roof. If this is the case, you’ll need to bring in professional PASMA trained specialists to test the asbestos particles and then carefully remove the material from your roof. Any suspected asbestos area will be made completely safe by us, to ensure there’s no risk of contamination.

Visual Roof Survey

Sometimes a visual roof survey carried out by our team of highly experienced commercial roofing and industrial roofing contractors, can be the most swift and effective way to identify any existing and potential trouble areas with your roof. We offer visual surveys as part of our planned or reactive maintenance programme, and our qualified experts will provide you with a thorough report, detailing any action that needs to be taken.

Moisture Scanning

Our moisture scanning is very effective for detecting any trapped moisture within your roofing system. It’s an alternative to our infrared roof inspection and is also a completely non-destructive method for finding moisture, which uses the very latest scanning technology. The device utilises low-frequency electrodes to measure the moisture content in the roof with pinpoint accuracy.

Along with these, there are plenty more options when it comes to our commercial roof surveys and diagnostics, so you can find the best survey solution for your roofing system.
