Building owners and property managers now have several tools at their disposal to assist with the investigation of conditions not readily observable during the visual roof inspection.
Do you have water leaks or moisture intrusion problems? An infrared moisture scan can detect otherwise hidden issues and can find the source.
Infrared Moisture Scans
Excessive moisture destroys structural integrity and creates huge, expensive problems like mold and mildew, which can cause serious health concerns. Often, these problems are not obvious until it’s too late so if you can discover them early through infrared technology, you can save yourself a lot of money and increase your building’s lifespan dramatically.
A roof moisture scan will pinpoint the areas of your roof where moisture is present allowing tremendous cost savings on unnecessary roof replacement. Moisture trapped in your roofing system also significantly reduces your insulation’s R-value which leads to increased cooling costs.
Through the use of infrared technology businesses can implement a predictive roof maintenance plan in lieu of the preventative maintenance plans. By implementing a predictive maintenance plan, the costs associated with regularly scheduled shutdowns can be minimized and businesses can save money.
Save Money on Roof Repair and Maintenance
Infrared testing finds small problems before they become bigger and more costly. By targeting the problem areas, it helps you make the most effective use of limited funds. Infrared surveys can also be a huge help in locating leaks.
Infrared Technology to Detect Moisture
Excessive moisture destroys structural integrity and creates huge, expensive problems like mold and mildew which can cause serious health concerns.

Locating Causes of Ice Dams
Infrared thermography is also an excellent tool for detecting the underlying causes of ice dams. Ice dams occur when excessive heat loss through the roof system melts snow accumulated on the roof. When the melt water reaches a colder area of the roof, it freezes and forms a “dam”. Ice dams can cause extensive damage to roofing and wall systems, creating yet more opportunities for water to enter the building.
Mold cannot grow without moisture, and eliminating moisture problems is the first and most cost-effective step in the effort to prevent mold growth on building surfaces.
While infrared testing does not directly identify mold, its ability to reveal the conditions that support mold growth makes it a highly cost-effective “first line of defense” in any comprehensive plan for addressing and preventing mold.
Whether you are looking to purchase or are managing existing properties, the ability to assess the existing condition and to find hidden problems through infrared thermographic testing can be of real value. Infrared scans can establish and document the baseline condition at a point in time which can be referred to in the future if problems develop.
