Why use thermography to identify flat roof leaks?

Our thermal imaging surveys give you the clearest and most concise condition report of your roofing system to help you identify a flat roof leak. Areas of the saturated insulation have a higher thermal mass when compared to dry, healthy parts meaning problem areas will hold heat for longer when compared to dry areas and therefore reveal themselves, in red and yellow colours, within a thermal image. 

Our thermal reports map out and give clear evidence of these problem areas and the most likely points of ingress allowing you to  carry out targeted repairs, saving time and money.

Having your flat roof repaired?

Thermal imaging can also be used as a quality assurance tool for flat roofing. A survey can be provided before and after a roof replacement to reveal improvements to the system,  putting both your clients mind at ease and displaying the quality of your workmanship.

Commercial Property Thermal Imaging surveys

Surveying commercial properties quickly and cost effectively can be a challenge. Most are in continual operation meaning access to certain areas can be problematic. A Thermographic Survey can be the perfect solution to determine any regions of weakness in the waterproofing and insulation of a commercial property. Thermal surveying is a form of non destructive testing (NDT) and can therefore be carried out without any risk to health and safety, staff or equipment.

How can IRT Surveys help?

IRT can survey commercial properties of all sizes, typically within a single working day.  There are a number of services available to help identify issues or give quality assurance. 

We also carry out general condition surveys which can highlight all of the above defects in a single, easy to understand thermal report.

Considering Refurbishments?

IRT Surveys can create an energy model of a commercial property and, along with our acquired thermal data, give a real life view of the properties performance. From this information, IRT can provide a comprehensive report detailing the regions of  missing insulation and trapped moisture and its financial impact on the property.

Our survey results allow you to effectively prioritise refurbishments based on their ROI.

Surveying dangerous unsafe roofs or areas of asbestos can be problematic. Cherry pickers can be used but when a detailed survey is required sometimes they can't do the job. 

IRT Surveys offer the best quality full radiometric thermographic surveys and analysis, whether for roofs, elevations or the whole building envelope internally and externally to allow you to ‘see’ and quantify the building’s defects.

Building Defects: Flat roof leak detection, poor detailing, missing or damaged insulation, delaminating render, moisture tracking, all easily identifiable.

We have full Civil Aviation Authority permissions to operate drones for commercial aerial work – are fully insured – and are experts in gathering aerial images using remote controlled multi-rotor aerial systems, also known as UAV, Drones. We process and edit in-house using the latest commercially licensed post-production applications.

We provide national coverage offering a responsive and personalised service.

We are market leaders in Aerial thermography. We offer an entirely new and unique perspective.  We can get closer, are more maneuverable and go where traditional aircraft can’t.
