On roofs, areas of roof moisture contamination manifest themselves as warmer (lighter in color) areas that may be nebulous in shape and sometimes mottled in appearance. They are commonly found in linear or puddle-like shapes.

The linear shapes many times follow areas, roof drainage routes, roof edges and seams. Puddle-like round or oblong shapes often form around roof penetrations such as mechanical equipment, standpipes, vents and drains.

The wet areas are lighter in color because the latent heat (from daylight sunshine) in the trapped water mass is greater than in the dry, functioning insulation or roof substrate.

After sunset when the roof cools, wet areas of the roof insulation and other materials continue to radiate heat, which allows our high-resolution infrared cameras to detect the sources of heat and record them for later analysis.
