Non Destructive Solution to Pin Pointing that Ingress Point

A recent project involved a long standing leak into two top floor apartments. Both apartments had been vacant for six months as the continual leak meant decorating or re-letting could not take place. Using a combination of non-destructive test methods, IRT located the ingress point allowing the two properties to be refurbished and re-let. The above thermal images show a poor region of detailing where the wall meets the roof. Ingress can be seen here in red and yellow colours adjacent to the wall. The corresponding internal image shows the moisture ingress in purple and black colours in the corner of the room.
