Infrared Roof Inspection
Available from Infrared Testing, Inc.
An infrared roof inspection identifies areas of moisture infiltration and deteriorating insulation in flat roofs before leaks happen. As water finds the path of least resistance, a leak may appear in one corner of the building, while the point of origin may be in another area. Our inspection finds moisture trapped in subsurface insulation so that repairs are targeted and only in the damaged areas.
We perform both walking and drone infrared roof inspections. We perform a walking inspection at dusk after a full day of solar loading. As we survey the roof, the areas that are holding water will show up on our infrared cameras. Infrared roof inspections should be performed on as needed based on insurance audit requirements, leaks and wind damage.
