If you have a flat roof or a low sloped roof on your commercial building, you know how great these roofing systems are. They are energy-efficient, durable, and are pretty cost-effective. Unfortunately, flat and low sloped roofs are one of the hardest places to detect if a roof leak is present or not. This is because wherever the leak starts can extend in any direction on the roof, making it hard to pinpoint where the leak is. Fortunately, there are leak detection and survey to determine where the leak is, but property owners can take it a step further by investing in an infrared roof moisture scan. This type of commercial roofing service is able to save you a ton of money, as this scan can accurately detect where wet roofing and insulation is so roofers can remove it and replace it with new materials. An infrared moisture scan can work on these types of flat roofs.

How Does an Infrared Scan Work?
Many people who want to know if moisture or leaks are present tend to ask how they type of scan works. During the day, the sun inevitably heats up our roofing and insulation; however, when the sun begins to go down and starts to cool down, the wet roofing and insulation is going to take longer to cool down, so the wet parts of your roof and insulation will be warmer than the dry parts of your roofing and insulation. Because infrared measures heat radiating from an object, an infrared roof moisture scan is able to detect what areas have the most thermal energy coming off of them. This type of scan is done during nighttime, as the roof will be cooled down at that point, but the wet spots will still be cooling down or warm. Once the scan is done, the roofer will have images of the roof where thermal energy is most prevalent. Those spots are where leaks and moisture are located and the areas that will require either roof repair or a replacement.
