Infrared Thermal Imaging
Infrared thermal imaging is a noninvasive way to effectively inspect, detect, and evaluate moisture intrusion in all types of buildings. Moisture intrusion in a building can cause havoc to the building structure and the individuals who live or work in the building. Thermal Imaging cameras use sensors to pick up infrared waves and formulate images based upon those waves. The resulting images, properly interpreted can be used to assess areas of potential moisture by evaluating differences in temperature. Temperature difference caused by evaporation, radiation, thermal bridging, infiltration/exfiltration and other sources must all be carefully evaluated. In doing so, RDC Restorations trained inspectors can use the information to spot suspect areas that are not visible to the naked eye. The findings are then verified using electronic, data-logging moisture detection equipment and in some cases core samples (some flat roofs). Schedule an inspection today by contacting us here.
