If you’ve got a commercial business with a flat roof, you may think it’s in great shape and not realize it has problems until you experience damage inside your facility. That’s because it can be tough to tell when there’s a problem on a flat roof.


But when minor problems to commercial flat roofs go unnoticed, they can lead to much more serious problems. At A-Plus Roofing in Minnesota, we use infrared roofing inspection to find out exactly what shape your flat commercial roof is in. Here’s how it works.


Flat Roof Maintenance

Flat roofs should undergo regular inspections and maintenance to keep them functioning at their top level of performance. We can identify trapped moisture under the surface of your roof and get to the root of problems before they get out of control.


We offer maintenance on all of the following commercial flat roofs:


●        TPO membranes- TPO membranes are thermoplastic membranes with superior ultraviolet protection.


●        Rubber membranes - EPDM membranes are made from a synthetic rubber compound.


●        Duro-Last roofs- Duro-Last roof membranes are durable, innovative pre-fabricated roofing membranes.


How Infrared Inspection Technology Works

Infrared technology uses a specialized infrared detection camera to evaluate the state of a commercial flat roof. Surface areas on the roof will store solar energy in the form of heat, while moisture tends to retain its temperature despite the heat around it. Through the view of our infrared camera, moisture will appear to be yellow. Where large areas of yellow appear, it’s apparent that there is a leak or flaw with the roof that requires repair.


Repairing Leaks and Damage

Isolating repairs only to the areas that show moisture retention saves business owners money in the long run. This also helps business owners to make the best decision as to whether they should repair the roof or go ahead and replace it. Our thermal mapping allows us to precisely outline the costs of your repair beforehand so there are no surprises. You’ll also understand what we’re doing throughout the entire process.
