What is Infrared Roofing Inspection?
Infrared roofing inspection is critical in making sure commercial roofs perform their best because they are used for detecting moisture in roofing systems, mainly within insulation. With deficiencies and voids in the system identified, roofing issues are spotted before a complete collapse occurs.
How Does It Work?
An infrared roofing inspection can read differentials in heat by assessing surface temperatures. As solar radiation can affect the temperature of a roof, they are carried out an hour after the sun sets. Moisture is capable of long heat retention, so areas of wet insulation will show more readily as the rest of the roofing system starts cooling.
Results may be affected by several variables, including: the type of insulation you have, your roof’s surface type and color, and indoor conditions.
When to Schedule One
Roofing inspections relying on infrared technology are best done when roofing surfaces are dry. This means ideal times of the year to schedule one is during the spring, summer, or early fall, where roofing systems experience full days of sun. Infrared roofing inspections are recommended every year as part of a commercial roofing maintenance program.
Regardless of when you schedule it, however, an infrared roofing inspection is best carried out by a skilled, knowledgeable, and trusted roofing expert.
