Commercial Roof Inspections & Testing FAQs
When do I need a Nuclear Roof Scan versus an Infrared Roof Scan?
Nuclear Roof Scans are typically used when the roof membrane is covered with overburden. This can be ballast (rock), pavers and or vegetative covering.
How long should a new roof last?
This depends on numerous factors. The life of a roof can be extended by routine inspections and maintenance. Is can be decreased by abuse, excessive foot traffic, HVAC service and a lack of preventative maintenance. Different types of roofing systems have vastly different life expectancies.
How does an Infrared Camera find water?
Contrary to belief, IR cameras do not detect moisture. They show a thermal image of the temperature of the substrate being scanned. Since wet building materials are more dense than dry materials (of the same content), the wet areas absorb energy and release stored energy slower than dry materials. Due to this factor, the wet materials are generally indicated as cooler in the infrared image.
