Commercial / Roof Surveys

Commercial Infrared Surveys and Roof Scans in NS

Could your property use an infrared inspection? Why not discuss the idea with Hindsight Infrared Services?

Infrared inspections can tell you if you’re losing energy and where, whether the condition of a prospective property makes it worth purchasing for a client, whether or not your roof is leaking and where those leaks are. We survey industrial buildings, commercial and retail buildings, municipal and institutional buildings and homes.

Fast and Thorough
Through infrared inspections, we can predict what kind of preventive maintenance you’ll need and how soon. This service is invaluable to property owners / managers and facility managers. Although it can be done quickly, with this technology we can ensure structural integrity (or lack of it) for building inspection and insurance purposes.

Annual Inspections Stave off Costly Issues
Hindsight Infrared Services’ annual infrared inspections can root out areas that need preventive maintenance before they become expensive problems – or worse, fire hazards. We’ll scan for:

  • Energy loss
  • Heat loss and air infiltration in ceilings, walls, floors, windows, doors
  • Water and moisture intrusion (causes of mould)
  • Structural issues
  • Missing framing members
  • Air conditioner compressor leaks
  • Overheated equipment
  • Electrical problems (fire hazards)
  • Broken seals in double-paned windows
  • Plumbing leaks
  • Fuel leaks
  • Damaged radiant heating systems
  • Circuit breakers that need replacement
  • Missing, damaged or wet insulation
  • Rodent or insect infestation
  • Roof leaks
  • Possible ways to achieve LEED credits

How Long Does it Take?
Hindsight Infrared Services can conduct a small commercial inspection in a day, usually; but inspecting larger buildings can require 5 days or more. In that amount of time, we’ll deliver to you a report specific to your property and intended use thereof.

What’s the Result?
Our inspection will include the use of thermal imaging, from which we’ll provide photos in your report. The cost of the inspection varies according to size, age, location and current usage of the property in question. Call us at Hindsight Infrared Services when you’re ready.

Roof Scans Improve Energy Efficiency
Infrared thermography is particularly well-suited to find the thermal anomalies created by trapped moisture under roofing membrane. A rooftop infrared moisture survey is the most efficient and economical method of determining the condition of the roofs you are in charge of. Today’s building owners save hundreds of millions of dollars annually with infrared roofing inspection. Many roofs need to be replaced prematurely due to moisture damage from leaks and improper installation. Infrared roof moisture surveys have a proven track record in finding damaged portions.

Infrared Roof Moisture Surveys locate the moisture your roof may be absorbing or is failing to keep out of your building. Infrared technology is the perfect application to inspect your roofing system for water or moisture. It is a non-destructive detection method visually documenting the areas in need of attention. Infrared is a non-destructive inspection method.
