Infrared imaging -looking for product feedback


#1

Hey folks. Have had some leads over the years on commercial leak repairs. Generally, these have had 2 roof systems. These can be a pickle to narrow down the point of intrusion. I am not talking about large commercial roof inspections/consultations. Just small service calls which include residential as well.

Looking for a recommendation on a hand held infrared device, pros/cons etc.

I use one on tough leaks, especially cap sheet bur. Works great, but can be fickle depending upon ambient temperature. I usually do the scan in the early evening so the “warm” water contrasts to the cool outside temp. They also take a little time to get comfortable with the scans. I’ve had mine a number of years so I assume newer rigs are better and less expensive.
