Paper Abstract

Correct interpretation of thermal anomalies detected during an infrared roof moisture survey depends upon a working knowledge of the types of thermal signatures exhibited by moisture-damaged roofing insulation. The paper discusses four characteristic thermal patterns indicative of moisture-damaged insulation, resulting from the different moisture absorption characteristics of different roof insulations. Appropriate survey conditions for detecting each type of signature are discussed, and example thermograms for each type of pattern are presented.
