All Roofs Need a Moisture Survey and We Have All the Right Stuff to Do Them Right
Since it is virtually impossible to visually determine the extent of wet insulation, roof moisture surveys are used to complement visual inspection. Today, numerous building owners, facility maintenance personnel, material manufacturers designers, consultants, lawyers, and others, even homeowners, use roof moisture surveys to help them understand their roof better.

When it comes to leaks in a structure, whether that structure is an office or a home, timeliness is of the utmost importance in minimizing the cost of a leak. Leaks not only add to the cost of a utility bill, the damage caused by water intrusion into the structure can require thousands of dollars of remediation and repair.
Water infiltration is one of the roofing industry’s most costly problems. Roof leaks can lead to a breakdown of insulation, loss of insulating properties, structural deck deterioration and property damage; all of which cost building owners billions of dollars every year. This often results in complete removal and replacement of the entire roofing system.

Detecting the Problems of Excess Moisture in the Building Envelope
By visual inspection, the location of excess moisture and decay in a Roofing Systems can be difficult and near impossible, as normal evidence of this moisture and decay may not be visible on the roof. Excess moisture can be hidden and trapped in the substrate or roof construction. If these conditions are allowed to continue the moisture will increase, eventually leading to rot and decay and possible failure of the system and structure. Also wet insulation loses its thermal value resulting in unnecessary heat loss or gain and thermal movement in the structure. Early detection of wet areas and corrective remedial action makes good economic sense.
Thermal Images Clearly Reveal Problems From Sources of Energy Loss, Moisture Intrusion and More
An all-in-one thermal picture with numbers, labels, and other structural features intact so you’ll instantly recognize where the moisture problem area is. This is a great tool for identifying hiddenÂ flat roof leak source points leading to more accurate diagnosis and repair by tracing roof leaks on a flat or low slope coated roof.
On low slope membrane covered roofs water can travel a considerable distance horizontally before it appears inside the building. Roof Top Services use a combination of visual inspection, moisture meters, and thermal imaging to scan membrane-coated roofs to find the wet areas below the membrane and thus the probable leak point.
Scanning All the Way Through to the Source of the Roof Leak
The Tramex Dec Scanner is a mobile, non-destructive impedance scanner designed for the instant surveying of moisture conditions in roofing and waterproofing systems compliant ASTM D7954 standards. This non-destructive impedance moisture meter has three ranges of sensitivity which enable the inspection of a variety of roof membranes and insulation thicknesses. This unique device provides leak tracing, water leak detection, problem sourcing, and an instantaneous and clear indication of roof condition with fast readings over large roof areas in a short time frame.
