Ithaca Roofing now offer Electronic Leak Detection services. This non-invasive technology can detect thesmallest of leaks in Flat roof Membranes and Felt Systems. We can detect leaks with pinpoint accuracy and target repairs more efficiently.
We can also provide a full roof condition survey to ensure that your roof is still fit for purpose, reliable and to provide you with peace of mind.
Electronic Leak Detection Process
Dry roof leak detectors use the non-conductive properties of roofing membranes as an insulator whilst the substrate beneath the membrane conducts the current and is earthed to the building. The detector is also earthed to the building and the probe is connected to the detector, creating an ‘open circuit’. As the detector passes a defect in the membrane, it creates an electrical circuit, the current ‘jumps’ the gap to earth; triggering the detector unit’s alarm and detecting the leak.
