Preventative maintenance is crucial to your commercial or low-slope roof’s longevity. While many people believe that the material installed on your roof determines the lifespan of the roof, the reality is that regular maintenance is the real key. By performing annual maintenance, your material warranty remains valid with the manufacturer, the life of the roof itself is extended, and you have the opportunity to correct a potential leak before it occurs. Investing in the longevity of your commercial and low-slope roofing systems through routine maintenance and inspections, is the best way to ensure it stays strong and safe throughout it’s lifespan.

 

While many business owners have their roofs inspected only after a leak has occurred, preventative maintenance will help proactively identify and implement early corrective solutions to problems before they cause irreversible damage. This could save the physical integrity of the roof and save you thousands on more extensive repairs or replacements.

A few reasons why commercial roofs fail are:

  • Ponding Water
  • Ultraviolet and Solar Radiation
  • Clogged Drainage
  • Foot Traffic
  • Improper Installation
  • Lack of Maintenance

Infrared Roof Scans

Infrared thermal imaging is the process in which the surface temperatures of an object are turned into a visual image. Thermal imaging measures IR, or infrared energy and converts the data into corresponding temperature maps. Since everything above the temperature of absolute zero (-459.6 degrees Fahrenheit) radiates heat, including cold objects, infrared cameras are able to provide precise measurements and readings.

Why are IR scans useful for roofs?

Thermal imaging is able to detect problems the naked eye can’t see. It’s a non-invasive means of viewing the condition of buildings, by providing immediate high-resolution thermal imagery. With it, you can check roofs and buildings for moisture deposits, leaks, and other damage. Without using IR, the only way to check for this issue would be to physically tear apart the structure to see inside.
