Thornton Consulting – Roof Condition Surveys

Roof condition surveys of an aged flat roof are an invaluable tool for assessing its current performance and condition and can then provide pointers as to the remaining projected lifespan.  Such an inspection can be integrated with other test procedures aimed at establishing the integrity of the waterproofing layer, determining build-up and condition of the elements below, such as insulation.

Furthermore, we can undertake a technical audit of other structural items which are considered a potential source of water ingress into the structure so that a comprehensive programme of remedial repairs can be produced, if necessary.

The service can include:

  • Electronic leak detection of the waterproofing membrane
  • Assessment of condition and projected lifespan
  • Roof moisture profile
  • Core samples
  • Technical audit of the roof
  • Comprehensive report including images
  • Infra-red thermography, where appropriate

Roof condition surveys are particularly useful for those involved in building refurbishments and facilities management or anyone who has an existing flat roof who require a roof survey to enable budget forecasts for future replacement or maintenance. It is also beneficial as part of a regular roof maintenance program and can be incorporated with our roof leak detection service to remain pro-active in preventing roof leaks.

With more than 30 years of roofing consultancy experience, our team of specialist consultants are able to undertake surveys on a variety of buildings from large commercial facilities and office blocks to car parks and residential buildings, such as apartment blocks.

We can assess most types of waterproofing, including:

  • Built-up felt
  • Single ply membranes
  • Mastic asphalt
  • Liquid applied waterproofing
  • Hot melt

We are happy to discuss all enquiries and can tailor our service to meet your specific requirements. Please contact us on + 44 (0) 1342 410508 for further information.
