Our Professional Roof Leak Detection Process

1. Internal Visual Inspection

Roof leak detection starts with an Internal Visual Inspection.

Our roof leak surveyors look for signs of water ingress, moisture damage, or wear, using their expertise to spot subtle indications of potential leaks or weaknesses.

2. Drone Roof Survey

A drone roof survey is used to safely examine exterior roof elements including flashings, tiles, valleys, parapets, ridge & verge pointing, chimneys, vents, and gutters.

Our drones are equipped with high definition video, photography and thermal imaging technology for the most detailed roof survey.

3. Tracer Gases

Leaks in roofing are traced using tracer access, access permitting. Tracer gases are used to fill the voids of ceilings and narrow spaces.

The tracer gases rise and are detected using our specialist tracer gas sniffers on the roof – confirming the location of the suspected leak.

4. Handheld Thermal Imaging

Handheld thermal imaging is a crucial technology in roof leak detection. Thermal imaging is a non-invasive method to locate hidden leaks and moisture through temperature variations.

Thermography allows for thorough inspections in hard-to-reach areas, visualizing water damage and structural issues not visible to the naked eye.

5. The Wet Test

The wet test in the flat roof leak detection process involves spraying water over the roof’s surface while a trace cable is positioned along the perimeter, establishing an electrical field.

This field generates pulses that pinpoint the location of earth leakage within its boundary.

The membrane thickness of the flat roof does not affect the effectiveness of the wet testing process.

6. The Dry Test

The dry test used for detecting punctures and pinholes in flat roofs, notably quicker than the wet test. 

It necessitates precise membrane thickness data input into the detector prior to commencement. 

For a successful dry test, the surface must be entirely free of moisture to find the leak. 

The technique involves applying a direct current voltage across the roof’s surface.

When a leak is encountered, the testing equipment emits a spark and beep, accurately signaling the leak’s location.
