Thermal Roof Surveys
A thermal roof survey uses Infra-red technology via a thermal imaging camera. By identifying and replacing the wet areas existing roof coverings can often be overlaid.
What is a thermal roof survey?
Within their first year, a commercial roof is at a 40% risk of developing a leak. Not only do we recommend that regular roof maintenance is undertaken, but often it is important to consider investing in fast, effective and affordable infrared leak detection.
Thermal roof surveys are non-destructive roof diagnostics carried out using infra-red technology. A thermal roof survey will identify anomalies within your roof and quickly show defective roof areas harbouring dangerous faults.
One of the biggest advantages of selecting a thermal roof survey is due to the fact that they work accurately and efficiently to locate trapped moisture within the flat roof membrane that could lead to rot, structural rust and increased energy usage.
Flat roofs are known to become more susceptible for trapped moisture to be discovered between the membrane elements that is often missed during most routine visual roof surveys.
What will your typical thermal survey involve
- Accurately locate wet or missing insulation, giving targeted areas of the roof to focus on.
- Allow for quick, cost effective identification and replacement of wet roofing problem zones.
- Mark defective areas on the roof’s surface with survey paint for a transparent execution of repairs.
Thermal cameras are versatile and will detect almost any potentially dangerous or hazardous roofing issue. They’re also great tools for discovering where insulation is missing in your roofs and how that’s effecting your business’ energy costs.
