Information obtained from the RoofScanIR report will facilitate an economically feasable plan for flat roof maintenance. A typical 10 year life roof can be extended out to 20 years or more, thus avoiding costly premature failure and replacement.
How it works
During the day, the sun radiates energy onto the roof and into the roof substrate, and then at night, the roof radiates the heat back into outer space. This is called radiational cooling. Areas of the roof that are of a higher mass (wet) retain this heat longer than that of the lower mass (dry) areas. Infrared imagers can detect this heat and "see" the warmer, higher mass areas, during the "window" of uneven heat dissipation. Heat loss and other IR services can be performed at the same time.
By using the information generated by a RoofScanIR report, the owner's roofing professional can recommend cost-effective removal and replacement of wet components and draw documents to prepare an adequate roofing substrate to receive a recover installation to extend the satisfactory roofing system's service life.
We create detailed, high-quality and easy to understand reports documenting roof moisture. Roof professionals can then use the information to verify the wet areas and write specifications to repair the roof.
