Flat Roof Thermal Scans: Non-Destructive Leak Detection with Infrared Technology

Mirowski Inspections provides non-destructive leak detection services for flat roofs using thermal imaging technology. Our experienced thermographers use thermal scans to locate specific areas on flat roofs where moisture has infiltrated the substrate, affecting the insulation value of the material. This can help identify the source of leaks, trapped moisture, and compromised insulation that may weaken the overall roof system and increase energy costs.

How does it work?

The technology works by detecting infrared radiation that is not visible to humans and creating a detailed map of the commercial low-slope roof. Moisture adds thermal mass to a roofing material, which makes it hold onto heat longer than the dry material next to it. The camera captures that heat, creating an image that shows the extent of moisture problems within the roofing system.

Thermal scans are crucial in predictive maintenance of a commercial roof asset and planning for life cycle budgets and provision for remediation. Our experienced thermographers can advise whether or not your roof is a good candidate for thermal imaging, which kind of thermal scan would give you the best results, and when to conduct the scan. The scan is performed under specific weather conditions and at specific times. While thermal imaging technology is an incredibly useful tool, it can only be used on certain commercial low-slope (flat) roof types, under specific weather conditions, and at specific times.

Investing in a flat roof thermal scan can save you time and money in the long run. Our services help extend the lifespan of your roofing system, reduce energy costs, and minimize repair expenses by detecting potential problems before they become more serious.
