Roofs leaks are one of the most inconvenient and destructive to happen to your commercial roof. They not only have the potential of ruining roofing and insulation, but they can mess up the structural integrity of a building. For most commercial roofs, it is easy to find a roof leak, but commercial properties that have a flat or low sloped roof have a harder time. This is because the point at which the puncture of tear is located doesn’t mean that is where the leak is. Roof leaks can travel anywhere on the flat roof or low sloped roof, so it makes it harder to find where the leak is located.
Fortunately with advancements in technology, roofers are able to find flat roof leaks a lot easier than before. Using roof thermal imaging, roofing contractors can precisely locate where the roof leak is and make the necessary insulation or roof repairs or replacement. Since this works well with flat roofing, the roofs that this type of imaging should be used on are built up roofing, modified bitumen, and single ply roofing.

How Does Roof Thermal Imaging Work?
Our roofing systems are an investment, and in order to ensure our investment is safe, we need to make sure that our flat or low sloped roofs get the repairs and maintenance that are needed. Because roof leaks and moisture are hard to find on flat and low sloped roofs, people are always curious how roof thermal imaging is able to detect leaks. When our roofs come into contact with the sun, the sun warms up the roof. Objects that are dry are going to cool down a lot faster than objects that are wet; once the sun goes down and the roof starts to cool, the wet spots on the roof and insulation are going to cool down a lot slower than the dry spots.
This is where thermal imaging comes in–thermal imaging is able to pick up on heat that is radiating off of objects, therefore, it is able to pinpoint what parts of the roof have leaks and moisture. It is important to note that the conditions outside and on the roof have to be perfect. This type of service works best when its clear during the day and night, there is no wind, the roof isn’t wet due to rain, and the roof isn’t dirty.
