Roof Leak Detection Services in Madison
A-Team Construction Unlimited, Inc. Offers Infrared and Nuclear Testing
Moisture is one of the most destructive forces, and it can severely weaken the integrity of your roof and property. If you suspect you have a leak in your roof or see signs of a moisture problem, you should schedule a roof inspection as soon as possible. Our Madison roof leak detection contractors use infrared and nuclear technologies to complete a thorough review of your entire roofing system.
For over 15 years, A-Team Construction Unlimited, Inc. has been serving Madison's commercial customers. Our roofing contractors are all highly experienced and fully trained. We cannot only identify the source of your roof leak, but we will also provide you with expert-level roof repair services. No matter what type of roof construction you have, including flat roofs, we can keep your property secure and dry.
Infrared Moisture Surveys
There is only so much that can be seen on the surface of your roof. While damage to shingles or your flashing may be immediately apparent, simple visual inspections are not a reliable way to identify a roof leak. Your roof may look beautiful on the surface but still have a moisture problem in the lower layers of its structure. At A-Team Construction Unlimited, Inc., we are on the cutting edge of roofing technologies, and we have adopted infrared leak detection as one of our methods.
The benefits of infrared leak detection are:
- Greater accuracy and pinpointing of a leak
- A more precise understanding of the extent of the leak and the affected areas
- Smaller leaks and underlying issues are more easily identified and located
- More comprehensive leak repair can be performed
- You will save money by effectively treating a leak on the first visit
- It will prevent further water damage
To perform infrared leak detection, we utilize an infrared camera and a moisture meter. After scanning your roof, we can identify where there is excess moisture in your roof's underlayment. Infrared leak detection must be performed in the evening hours when the majority of your roof has cooled off. Areas with water retention will show up as warmer on the infrared camera, alerting us to the location of a leak. Once we have identified all sectors with a moisture issue, we can begin to determine the cause of the leak and repair it. Infrared is particularly useful for chronic roof leak issues.
Nuclear Roof Moisture Detection Surveys
Another technology available to us is the nuclear moisture inspection. Similar to infrared scanning, the nuclear method allows us to see what's going on under your roof's surface. In a non-invasive way, it enables us to identify where moisture is getting trapped in your roof. Nuclear leak detection can be performed on any type of roof and is particularly useful when detecting leaks on flat roofs and large commercial properties. It is also considered the most accurate method for finding moisture problems and leaks on ballasted roofs.
The benefits of nuclear moisture detection are:
- It can be performed at any time of the day
- It can be used on ballasted roofs and flat roofs
- It can penetrate several layers of insulation
- It can identify different moisture levels
- It provides extreme accuracy
Nuclear testing is done utilizing a 5'X 5' or 10' X 10' grid, depending on your roof. The nuclear meter then detects hydrogen ions, which, in this case, indicate water. After performing the inspection, we will provide you with a final report regarding the location and extent of the leaks we found. We will then also provide you with all of your repair options.
