Class A Roofing Consultants provides thermal imaging and aerial thermal imaging technology to locate moisture in the roofing system and in the building interior. A thermographic flat roof survey is used to locate and identify moisture-laden areas within the roof substrates.
Since the infrared imaging system will identify any temperature variations (thermal anomalies) on a flat roofs surface, verification of moisture must be made in order to avoid false anomalies. Therefore, we use non-destructive electrical impedance scanners, to verify our findings. We also use roof and wall scanners, concrete moisture meters, humidity probes, and an infrared surface thermometer to complete our moisture surveys. Additionally, core cuts can be done too if needed.
We offer thermal capacitance testing and mapping of the moisture trapped in your roofing systems. The Tramex Dec Scanner detects and evaluates the moisture conditions within roofing systems by non-destructively measuring the electrical impedance. A low-frequency electronic signal is generated, transmitted into the material under test via one of the two electrodes incorporated in the rubber electrode mat, and received by the second electrode. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture in the material under test. The Dec Scanner determines the strength of the current and converts this to a comparative moisture content value. By moving the Dec Scanner across a roof surface in a regular pattern, a continuous reading is obtained, and areas that contain moisture can be readily identified.
