Benefits of an Infrared Roof Scan
An Infrared roof scan is usually completed by a drone that scans you flat commercial roofing system from above. This allows our roofing staff to map the moisture seeping into your roofing materials and show you the percentage of your roof that has been compromised. Depending on the amount of moisture on your roof we will recommend getting certain areas of the roof repaired or possibly a complete replacement. Performing an infrared scan before deciding on a solution for your roof can save you a lot of money in the long run. It is also a good idea to have your roof scanned before deciding on a roof restoration, as it shows you what is hidden beneath your roofing materials that could cause problems later on down the road. Infrared roof scans are a fast, accurate way to find out the condition of your roof and determine the best plan of action.
Infrared technology reads the level of heat energy being emitted from a certain object. As the sun beats down on your roofing materials, some of the heat energy is absorbed. Areas of your roof that are collecting moisture retain more of the excess energy. When the infrared camera scans the roof, these areas show up as warmer than the surrounding areas on the roof, allowing our roofing staff to pinpoint the exact location of moisture build up in your roofing materials.
