Infrared thermal imaging or “thermography” is a technique in which, an infrared gun is used to photograph and measure temperature variations in residential, industrial and commercial roofs.
Everything emits heat energy in a portion of the energy spectrum, this energy is invisible to the human eye. Thermal imagers or infrared cameras can not only record this heat energy, but can also accurately measure the temperature variations of building materials. These variations could indicate problems in the building’s roof system.
Utilizing the latest technology out of Germany through the use of TROTEC Infrared Cameras, your TOUGHROOF installer can provide you with an extremely accurate scan and report of underlying wet or damaged roof insulation.
Infrared scans would normally cost you $1500 to $10k for larger roofs. All TOUGHROOF flat roof contractors provide this service for free.
