While in this particular example, traditional surveying methods for defect detection wasted time, effort and money on destructive and ultimately fruitless testing of the property’s roof, a simple thermal image captured in a matter of seconds revealed a build up of water in the cladding system.
Meanwhile, thermographic analysis of the 24,000m2 roof showed it to be in excellent condition.
In other words, the dispute existed because surveyors were looking in the wrong place. Examples like this are the reason infrared thermography has revolutionised defect detection in the areas that matter most – accuracy, cost and speed.
