Quick Building Moisture Surveys
Do you need quick Building Moisture Survey for Commercial Flat roofs. Billions of dollars are lost each year by un warranted flat roof replacement on commercial buildings. The Tramex Dec Scanner is a mobile device that is used for detecting moisture underneath the roofing membranes using roof moisture survey for large roof areas. This non-destructive testing method is often combined with electric capacitance/ impedance testing and/or infrared moisture verification testing to accurately identify water entry pathways and areas of entrapped water. EMA can readily perform roof moisture surveys on commercial roof and report the results to owners, so they know which parts need replacement. The results of the moisture survey can be verified by Infrared roof moisture scanning also.
The Dec Scanner is designed for testing built up roofing and non-conductive single ply membrane. It provides instantaneous, clear indications of roof conditions and is able to detect as little as 2% excess moisture in these large-scale roofing systems. This testing method can be performed in conjunction with, or in certain cases in lieu of infrared thermography in flat roof inspections.
The Tramex Dec Scanner is a mobile non-destructive impedance scanner designed for the instant surveying of moisture conditions in roofing and waterproofing systems per ASTM D7954. Ideal for water leak detection in roofing materials.

Roof Moisture Surveys
Saturated insulation in your roofing system can lead to water intruding your building. When water enters your building, not only can it damage your building’s systems and components, but it can also jeopardize the health and safety of your building’s tenants. Things like black mold can easily form in insulation and on ceiling tiles. When this happens, it can get in the air and tenants can breathe it in, causing major health issues. With an infrared roof moisture inspection, our experts can locate the areas of increased temperature and help you identify water intrusion sites.
