minneapolis Roof Inspection services
A Plus Roofing provides commercial roofing services throughout the Minneapolis area. One of the foundations for providing quality, high-grade service for commercial roofing is to provide a comprehensive commercial roof inspection. We provide Infra-red roof inspection services because this technology is an industry proven technology that offers superior detection of hidden moisture on and beneath flat roofing surfaces.
How Does Infra-Red Technology Help Detect Hidden Moisture?
Infra-Red technology is deployed using a special camera. The imaging from the camera show where moisture has accumulated beneath the roofs surface by highlighting difference in temperatures. Moisture is always slightly cooler then non-wet surfaces because water is capable of storing more solar energy (heat) without changing temperature, unlike surface material that heat up quickly. The result is that yellow images appear on the thermal imager and those are areas where water has seeped under the roofing surface. The process is comprehensive as it shows exactly which areas of the roof are damaged.
What are the Advantages of Using an Infra-Red Roof Inspection?
The first advantage that Infra-red provides is that is provides an exact picture of the extent of damage on a roof. The second advantage is that thermal imaging shows exactly where moisture has become trapped. This means that repairs can be isolated to those areas where moisture has accumulated. In terms of cost reduction, infra-red thermal imaging is so accurate that you can see how much damage has been done to the roof. This helps clients make comprehensive decisions about whether roof repair or replacement is needed. Repairing a roof is often a lot less expensive than replacing the entire roof. Infra-red roof inspections allow clients to make an informed decision about how to care for their commercial roof. If the thermal image shows a lot of retained moisture then it may be more cost-effective to replace the entire roof. If there are isolated areas of moisture infiltration than repairing the roof may be the most cost effective choice. So sum up the advantages:
- Exact extent of moisture infiltration.
- Exact location or mapping of damaged areas.
- Precise repair estimating.
- Collection of data that helps to form an informed decision about roof repair/replacement.
