Moisture in building materials can destroy structural integrity and nurture mold. The first step in moisture problem remediation is to quickly and accurately locate and remove the source of moisture. Kyron’s moisture investigations using Thermal Imaging can instantly identify potentially wet material and ultimately find the leak source quickly and with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and minimal disturbance of building occupants.
Water infiltration from roofs is the number one factor that leads to:
- Damaged insulation and substrate
- Corrosion, degradation and weakening of building structures
- Sustaining the growth of mold
Non-intrusive moisture meters are often ineffective on many roofs due to their matrix makeup. Other methods of detecting moisture require destructive
moisture probes or core samples in areas most likely to have been impacted by water. Not only do these destructive methods severely impact the roof’s integrity, wet areas can easily be over looked if no external signs are present. Many facilities have had their roofs replaced at a great expensive when accurate moisture identification with Thermal Imaging could have resulted in less expensive selective roof repair. Kyron’s Thermographers can find the areas of wet insulation, collect verification core sampling, and document the findings with thermal images, digital photos, and diagrams identifying moisture. Kyron’s moisture investigations on roofs have saved building owners hundreds of thousands of dollars.
