Undertaking a roof analysis will help define the strengths and weaknesses of existing assemblies.  Tektum provides clear and concise reports that include:

  • Overview of your existing facilities

Thermographic Imaging Investigation

Infrared Thermographic investigations are a process that identifies damaged wet areas within the roofing assembly.  While not always visible or notable from the surface of the roof, pinpointing wet areas within the roofing assembly can be a major advantage to achieving major cost savings within your project.

Thermographic image analysis observes the temperature variance within the assembly, which is then confirmed wet or dry by probing at a later date.  Usually, read in conjunction with a roof condition assessment, this allows Tektum to provide their clients with reports outlining the wet areas of the roof along with all obtainable solutions which could include, but are not limited to, minor repairs, resurfacing or complete re-roofing.
