Applying Science to Leak Detection
Although roofs represent a small portion of the overall new building cost, 60% of roofs leak within the first year and can be one of the most litigious aspects of the building. Electronic leak detection technologies can pinpoint breaches or thin areas in the roofing membrane and are far superior to standard flood or and infra-red testing which do not. These technologies save money for the owner, general contractor, and roofing installer, especially for properties with ballasted, solar or green roofs. They are recommended as fundamental quality control and are a critical aspect of any service plan for waterproofing.
