Recently I was hired by the Auckland City Council to check a leak that was coming out of a light fitting in one of their buildings.
Below is an interesting infrared image of the light fitting in question, which clearly shows you how water can track ‘sideways’ from the leak entry point.
In addition to this leak, there were several other roof leaks revealed… instantly. That’s the upside to using our thermal imaging camera… the results are instant and can be confirmed using moisture testing equipment on the spot.
Can you see where the leak starts and finishes?
Notice how you can’t see this leak in the right hand image?
