Infrared Thermography Roof Inspection
WHAT WE LOOK FOR
Although improper roof drainage can best be observed immediately after a rain storm, most impacted drainage conditions will leave "tell-tale" indications even after standing water has evaporated:
"Soft" Roof Insulation- If the roof insulation appears to be "soft" under foot, it may have absorbed excessive moisture.
Cracking, Spallding or Discoloration Of Walls.
The deterioration may be an indication of moisture entry. Loose Metal Wall Flashings. Look for any discontinuities in the firm, uniform compression between metal flashings and the wall surface. Covered "Weep Holes". Look for masonry weep holes that have become clogged or were accidentally covered over by the roof flashing
Missing Or Broken Weather Seals On Equipment Housings. Frequent maintenance of rooftop equipment may allow weather seals and sheet metal joints to loose water tightness. Cracked or Sunken Caulking. Almost all joints in metal flashings are sealed with an application of sealant or caulking. Any cracking or other discontinuity is a potential source of water entry.

MOISTURE INFILTRATION INSPECTION
Moisture can enter into a roofing system many different ways. In addition to water entry due to roof membrane leaks, moisture can enter a roofing system due to condensation from internal humidity, infiltration through building walls, water entry through equipment housings and latent moisture entrapped beneath the roof system.
WHERE DEVELCO WILL LOOK
Building Walls & Parapets. Many types of wall construction, especially masonry and stucco, can allow moisture infiltration due to porosity and cracking. Particular attention should be paid to metal flashings associated with walls, including wall copings, reglets, counter-flashings, and termination bars. Large Rooftop Units, the metal housings around these units may allow water entry. Skylight glazing beads and metal trim flashings typically require periodic maintenance.
