On-Roof Moisture Surveying

Infrared imaging is a proven method for identifying and defining moisture problems in your roof. On-roof infrared moisture surveys enable you to make informed decisions and will help develop your roof asset management program. Correct problem areas without the tremendous expense of replacing the entire roof.

As water enters your roof through the waterproofing layer(s) by tears, cuts, poorly sealed penetrations, failed flashings and caps, the insulation below can become laden with water and trapped in the roof substrate. If left in disrepair, the concrete deck absorbs or traps water, the wood deck rots. The metal deck rusts, and water intrudes into the building’s interior. On-roof infrared moisture surveys are useful in locating these moisture intrusions before they become more serious.
