Thermography is the only diagnostic technology that lets you instantly visualize and verify thermal performance. Our infrared cameras show you thermal problems, quantify them with precise non-contact temperature measurement, and document them automatically in seconds.
Detect roof failures with non-destructive results and prevent further damage to existing roof systems.
MSI Infrared scans are fast and affordable, and they provide accurate observations of the condition of an existing roofing system. Our team is capable of evaluating a roof area in a single visit during our walk-over method, or millions of square feet by utilizing low flying aircraft. Infrared imaging stands above all other methods in prolonging the life of a commercial roof system. Infrared roof inspections are a non-contact and non-destructive testing method to determine active roof leaks.
Infrared roof inspections work on the principle that different materials in the roof have different thermal masses. In the daytime, the sun heats the roof structure. After the sun sets, the roof begins to cool. If there is a leak in the roofing membrane, the insulation inside the roof will become wet. The wet insulation has a higher thermal mass than the rest of the dry roof structure. Because of the difference, the “wet” areas will maintain heat energy longer than other areas, providing the infrared thermographer with a clear picture of the damaged areas.
MSI annual roof scans are an essential part of any preventative maintenance program.
