If you’re dealing with a leaky roof, you’re probably also dealing with frustration and concern about high repair costs. To be sure, roof repairs can be a tremendous pain in the neck for many homeowners. However, a professional home inspection that includes thermal imaging could be exactly what you need to reduce the frustration and concern you’re dealing with.
Thermal imaging can help you to identify exactly where the roof leak may be originating from. This is especially useful the day or so after a rainstorm. As the rain makes its way into your roof through the leak, moisture gets trapped in the materials of your roof. As the sun comes out and dries up the rest of the roof, that moisture retains the heat for longer than the rest of the roof. In the hands of a trained professional, an infrared camera can identify the hot spots on your roof. Once you know where those are, you can focus your repair efforts on only the areas that need maintenance.
