Hidden moisture is your roof's worst enemy. It wastes energy, eats away at the roof deck, and contributes to "sick building syndrome". Even worse, it spreads over time. Catch it early, though, and you can stop it with relatively inexpensive repairs.
A Thermocore infrared moisture analysis provides a detailed thermal map of hidden moisture. After a WTC technician visually inspects the roof and determines that there are potential issues, a sensitive infrared scanner is used at night to detect temperature differentials across the roof; areas over wet insulation appear warmer than surrounding areas.
WTC technicians then use moisture probes to verify wet areas, and the results of the infrared survey are confirmed by taking core samples. Some physical testing is necessary to measure the amount of moisture at the core site and details of the roof construction. All roof cores and moisture probes are immediately repaired with Tremco materials to ensure waterproofing continuity. You get the data you need to help make the best decisions with your roof budget.
