Thermal imaging scans have become a vital source of information when inspecting a roof. Primarily used for commercial roofing, thermal scans have proven to be an important tool in preventative maintenance as well. The ability to detect moisture and wet areas under the roof can save property owners the expense of a full roof replacement on their building by replacing the wet areas instead. Saving the customer time, money, and resources are all attributes to performing a thermal scan on a roof.
The process of a thermal imaging scan is simple. The roof is measured during the day and sketched out on paper. During the early evening hours (after the sun has set and the temperature lowers) the roof is scanned with the camera. The areas with wet insulation retain heat and are clearly illustrated by the camera (see image below). The overall difference in temperature is noted in the thermal camera by highly sensitive receptors which will detect any temperature variance. Having this process done as preventative maintenance is beneficial as wet areas can be detected before they spread to other areas of the roof thus resulting in more extensive costs.
