Paper Abstract

Standard methods are necessary to assure the quality of infrared roof moisture surveys. An ASTM C 16.30 task group is currently working on the first draft of a Standard Practice for the location of moisture in insulated roofing system using infrared thermography. The Standard Practice will address procedures for both aerial and ground-based surveys. Additionally, instrument requirements, types of applicable constructions, operator qualifications, environmental and substrate conditions, as well as data interpretation, verification and reporting requirements will be outlined. The result is intended to be a practice which, if followed, will ensure roof moisture surveys of consistent quality.
