Fix My Roof understands the issues homeowners and facility managers face with low sloped roofs. Infrared Thermography Surveys provide valuable insights by identifying moisture trapped within the roof’s insulation. This is a common problem with Polyurethane Closed Cell Foam and some TPO substrates. Tar and gravel, rolled or metal roofs don’t usually suffer from these issues. Having this kind of information allows our clients to make informed decisions when it comes to maintaining their roof’s structure. So, let’s say you do have a roof prone to such problems. What can an Infrared Thermography Survey do for you?
Knowing how much moisture is contained within a roof’s substrate helps determine the magnitude of the damage. Traditionally, if more than 20% of the roof contains moisture, experts recommend tearing off the roof down to the original decking and replacing the whole roof. If less than 20% is saturated, it is recommended to replace only the damaged areas, and invest in a new roof coating to prolong the roof’s life.
