Infrared scanning is a non-destructive testing method that can help detect hidden problems in commercial flat roofs. It uses infrared technology to identify thermal patterns and anomalies that may indicate leaks, insulation issues, and moisture problems.

Incorporating infrared scanning into your flat roof inspection routine can provide substantial benefits and save you money in the long run. One of the critical advantages the ability to detect moisture in your roof system, which can create significant long-term problems if left unattended.

Commercial Flat Roof
Repair VS. Replacement

There are a number of advantages to using infrared scans for flat roof repair vs replacement decisions. High-resolution images produced by infrared scans allow for targeted repairs, reducing costs and extending the roof’s lifespan.

When it comes to flat roof replacement, infrared scans can provide valuable insights highlighting damaged areas and indicating where potential issues may arise. The infrared scan results can help contractors make informed decisions on which parts of the roof need replacing and which can be salvaged.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Infrared Scans For Flat Roofs

Infrared thermography operates on the principle that moisture increases the thermal mass of roofing materials. causing them to retain heat longer than drier areas. Under optimal conditions, a thermal camera captures this heat, generating an image that reveals the extent of moisture issues within the roofing system

This technology is pivotal for the predictive maintenance of high-value roofs, illustrating moisture infiltration and migration. It assists in planning life cycle budgets and remediation efforts.

Thermal imaging identifies sound and compromised roof areas, facilitating long-term preservation. Employing this technology proactively prevents water damage before it escalates, allowing owners to mitigate collateral damage to the building interior and assess overall roof health without resorting to random or destructive testing.

As infrared thermal and roof leak specialists with over 40 years of experience. With years of analyzing thermal patterns of water beneath roofing membranes. We are experts at reading infrared roof surveys. We know how moisture shows up here so are able to identify it quickly. Our readings are corroborated using non-destructive moisture meters.

Infrared detection does not specifically identify mould. But it provides mould inspectors with a comprehensive view of local conditions that may foster mould infestation. Post-mold remediation, infrared imaging is utilized to ensure thorough drying of all building materials before reconstruction begins. Incomplete drying may lead to mould resurgence.

We advocate for the most accurate results through aerial thermal surveying using a thermal drone, followed by an on-roof inspection. In cases where roof access is limited, the entire thermal roof inspection can be conducted from the ground. Conversely, when a thermal drone is impractical, we perform the inspection entirely on the roof.

Firstly, trapped moisture reduces the R-Value of insulation, compromising energy efficiency. This leads to increased energy consumption for heating or cooling, putting strain on the HVAC system and diminishing its lifespan.

Secondly, depending on the roof deck type. Moisture can cause issues such as absorption in concrete decks, and rusting in metal decks. These problems have the potential to weaken the entire roofing system structurally, eventually manifesting as visible moisture intrusion inside the building.
