Flat Roof Leaks

 

 
 
Infrared flat roof inspections work on the principle that different materials in the roof have different thermal mass. In the daytime, the sun heats the roof structure. After the sun sets, the roof begins to cool. If there is a leak int he roof membrane, the insulation inside the roof will become wet. The wet insulation has a higher thermal mass than the rest of the "dry" roof structure. As a result of this difference, the "wet" areas will maintain heat energy longer than other areas providing the infrared inspector with a clear picture of the damaged area.
 
You may save thousands of dollars by repairing the damaged roof sections only. Extend the life of your roof and prevent damage to the structural componenets of the roof deck.
