Water infiltration is one of industry's most persistent and costly problems. The loss of insulating properties, structural deterioration and damage to interiors caused by these leaks cost owners of flat, built-up roofs billions of dollars every year. Much of this expense is wasted because the entire roof is removed when only a portion of it actually needs replacing. Rising energy and roofing material costs compound the problem.
The Troxler Model 3216 RoofReader allows mapping of hydrogen concentrations within the roofing structure, permitting repair or replacement of only saturated areas. As part of a preventative maintenance program, the RoofReader quickly pinpoints problem areas. The RoofReader is also an effective quality assurance tool on new roofing materials for warranty verification and for tracing leaks.
