At Holley, for commercial inspections, roofs get a lot of our attention - not least because a large part of building maintenance cost is invariably wrapped up in the commercial roof. For this reason, we use specialized infrared roof scanning systems to ensure a quality inspection with the least invasive effect on the existing roof.
The benefits includle the following:
INFRARED THERMAL ROOF SCAN IS NON-DESTRUCTIVE
Infrared Thermal Scanning is nondestructive. However verification of the marked areas of wet insulation on the roof need to be confirmed followed up by moisture probing meters or core sampling.
Thermal imaging of flat insulated roofs with an infrared (IR) camera quickly and accurately identifies areas of a roof that may have been compromised long before any ill effects are discovered inside a building.
EARLY INTERVENTION – REDUCE OVERALL MAINTENANCE COST
By performing regular roof scans you’ll be able to intervene early, before a small problem becomes a large one. And building owners will be pleased to reduce the overall cost of roof maintenance.
INFRARED THERMAL ROOF INSPECTION IS COST EFFECTIVE
When compared to dealing with a catastrophic loss of a failed low slope, insulated or flat roof, annual IR roof thermal imaging scan and preventive maintenance is a clear winner.
Another cost related benefits is that a properly maintained roof will lower your energy costs. Wet insulation isn’t as effective as dry insulation.
