Commercial Real Estate Roof InspectionDrone Infrared Imaging
Commercial real estate roof inspection with infrared will take the unknown out of the equation in purchasing a building. With the new codes for roof insulation on a flat commercial industrial roof, commercial roofs have become a very expensive proposition. As an owner, if you are purchasing a building, an infrared scan of the roof can reveal what current owners probably don’t want you to know. Moisture underneath a roof system will serve as a catalyst to deteriorate the roof system from the underside of the system. What does this mean? Replacing your roof could cost between $10-$20 per sq ft. This needs to be negotiated before the sale of the building!
The above infrared roof scan can reveal whether there is moisture trapped under the system. Is the above infrared something that will make us fearful or something that will make us feel secure? The answer is secure. The above system has very little changes in temperature all the way across the roof system thus giving it an “A” rating. There are no signs of moisture or leaks for that matter.
Drone Infrared Imaging can give security knowing for sure the roof on your future facility is in good condition. We can take the guess-work out of a roofing contractor taking core sample to see if moisture is found. ONE other important point: Roof insulation can absorb a lot of water before it actually leaks into the building. So just asking if there are any leaks is not a good determination that the roof is safe and sound.
