Roofing technology progresses rapidly, especially when it comes to commercial roofs that need to provide comprehensive protection for high-value items, such as machines and merchandise of various kinds – here are some of the innovations that have been only recently introduced:
- Drone surveys – the usage of drones equipped with cameras allows roofers to supervise the roofing process from the ground, without anyone having to step on the roof and it also allows experts to take shots of the roof under construction or under repair from angles that are not accessible for humans,
- Infrared moisture scans – the technology still requires an airborne vehicle and a pilot to take the scanning device up into the air, but the method is already widely used for identifying problem points on roofs and for determining the ideal thickness of the insulation to be installed,
- New materials used for enhancing the resistance and durability of existing roofs – the latest roofing materials are manufactured with special technologies that enhance their durability and resistance, but there are lots of new methods available for old roofs that don’t need replacement yet, but can do with a little improvement. Special coating materials are used for making old roofs more resistant to changing temperatures and new striping methods are also available to prevent the accumulation of moisture within the roof.
