Industrial Infrared Roof Testing

Do you need to test your flat roof?

If you have a leak on a new to mid life flat roof and have been told that a new roof is needed, call us first. We may be able to save you a substantial amount of money. Roof testing using thermal imaging can be used to detect the precise location of the leak and mark the affected area so that repairs can be made to the leaking area. A roof replacement is a last resort. Always ask for a second opinion and an infrared roof inspection.

Just a few advantages of commercial infrared roof scan testing are:

  • Damaged areas can be pinpointed and repaired before system failure occurs.
  • Damage to structural roof components can be prevented.
  • The efficiency of roof maintenance is increased and roof repair costs are decreased.
  • Unscheduled down time, equipment damage, and product losses can be avoided.
  • Energy Savings can be achieved by finding damaged insulation and air leaks.
  • Insurance Premium savings may be available.
  • Roof areas needing design improvements can be addressed.
  • Destructive testing only occurs in areas identified during a thermal inspection.
  • Safety is increased by reducing the chance of a catastrophic roof failure.
  • Roof life can be extended by as much as 100%.

Infrared imaging stands above all other methods in prolonging the life of a commercial roof system. Infrared roof inspections are a non-contact and non-destructive testing method to determine active roof leaks. The infrared camera allows us to scan large areas of the roof from a distance. Traditional roof inspection methods require a time-consuming grid type contact search (capacitance testing) that involves drilling holes (core sampling) in the roof membrane. This inspection method is definitely not recommended!

Roof roof testing has been developed out of many years of experience in the roofing industry. During this time we have established that the needs of the majority of building owners and property managers is to have accurate information about the condition of their flat roof to allow them to carry out planned maintenance and budgeting. Ineffective repairs and unnecessary roof replacement are a drain on their finances and they want to have more control.

Over the past years we have researched and implemented the most effective non-destructive roof testing method to allow us to provide our service to you, the building professional. Our roof testing services can be used on an individual specific test basis or to provide a complete picture of the roofs condition.

Roof aims to provide professional building owners and managers with critical information with regard to the condition of their roofs so that they can make informed decisions to the correct course of action in their roof maintenance program.
