Leaks and deterioration are the number one enemies in maintaining your building, and if you don’t catch them early, they can result in the need for extensive repairs.
You do have a couple of options for taking care of these anomalies. You could take a wait-and-see approach, which involves ignoring the condition of your building until you’re catching drips in buckets or contending with an electrical shortage. Or, you can take a proactive approach and use infrared scanning which gives you the ability to pinpoint even tiny leaks before they can cause major damage your building’s structure.
Infrared Imaging Science or Thermography measures heat differentials, not moisture to detect anomalies. Liquids retain heat longer then solids, therefore wet insulation will have a different (hotter) heat signature then dry insulation.
Robert J Stahl Architect's infrared surveys are conducted by our team of thermal imaging contractors. All of our thermographers have Level III Certification by the American Society of Non-Destructive Testing, the highest level training attainable.
An infrared survey helps develop the course of action for repairing, restoring, or replacing components of your building. Utilizing infrared technology is also an important tool to accurately budget and plan for required work based on the information gathered. Early detection of even small problems allow for corrective action to be implemented before the problems become more destructive and costly.
This will save you not only time and money but unnecessary future frustration.
HOW WE HELP
Roof Inspection: Uncover areas of moisture in your roofing causing loss in insulation properties and potential structural damage.
Building Envelope: With our infrared technology, RJSA can identify leaks and deterioration to help prevent increased energy costs.
Electrical Survey: Infrared electrical inspection can detect high temperatures coming from electrical panels, wiring, and circuit breakers to help prevent shortages, outages, and fires.
Mechanical Survey: Pinpoint blockages and leaks without interrupting operations longer than what is needed to correct the problem.
Process Flow Survey: This data analysis can reveal high temperatures coming from pipes, valves and other components in your industrial or commercial system.
