MOISTURE SURVEY


For moisture detection within roof substrate materials, PCI's capabilities include non-destructive moisture surveys utilizing hand-held equipment including infrared camera, nuclear meter, and/or capacitance technology. These services typically include:

• Performance of instrumented thermographic survey of designated roof areas with hand-held infrared imaging equipment ("InSight").


• Compilation of meter readings obtained at a pre-determined grid spacing over the roof using either Troxler Nuclear Moisture Meter or Tramex Capacitance Meter.


• Core sample analysis of roof system construction.


• Verification of moisture presence via moisture probes with Delmhorst Moisture Meter and/or roof cores.


• Identification and marking of areas on the roof suspected of containing wet substrate materials.


• Preparation of annotated roof plan depicting penetrations, curbs, identified anomalies, and core/probe locations.


• Preparation of a roof moisture survey report, including summary of survey results, recommendations, annotated roof plan, and photographic documentation.
