Pressbox (Press Release) -
Roof Consultants, Inc. President Al Kravitz has completed Level 1 Thermography training from Snell Infrared, one of the world leaders in infrared technology.
Most infrared roof surveys are performed by technicians trained in infrared sciences, but not trained in roofing and roof systems. By combining 33 years of roofing experience and intensive infrared training Roof Consultants, Inc. now provides a complete package for clients around the nation.
Over 70 % of all roofs removed and replaced don't need a complete restoration. In many cases the problems with a roof are isolated to small specific areas. These areas are identified by infrared thermography. "That is where most thermographers stop. Follow up inspections are necessary to verify the camera findings, including destructive ( roof core testing) and non-destructive follow up such as electro magnetic meter readings. In most cases a roofing consultant and or a contractor performs the follow up inspections. This adds to the cost of the survey" says Kravitz.
RCI provides a complete inspection package from cad drawings, on site visual inspection, infrared survey, follow up verification and design and specifications for necessary repairs.
Having an infrared roof survey performed prior to electing to completely remove and replace a roof can save building owners thousands of dollars. The infrared scan detects moisture and moisture is a cause of building problems such as mold, mildew, deck deterioration and ineffective roof insulation.
Roof Consultants, Inc. are members of the Roof Consultants Institute and The Exterior Design Institute.
Clients include school districts in Illinois and New York, Industrial Clients and Government agencies such as Amtrak and the U.S. Postal Service.
