We value our free ELD as part of our leak detection arsenal. Whilst our Surveyors are incredible, there are some issues the eyes cannot detect.
An ELD allows us to compile a thorough understanding of the roof and best prescribe the most effective remedial action available. This coupled with our expert roofing teams are sure to facilitate a 100% leak free roof.
An Electronic Leak Detector (ELD) is used for locating roof leaks, pinholes, porosity and other faults in new or existing non-conductive membranes and coatings on conductive substrates.
In Electronic Roof Leak Detection the ELD works on the principle of passing a current over the roof surface through a copper brush electrode so that, when a path to earth is found, such as through a puncture or defective lap, an alert is sounded. All defects are marked, numbered and their locations shown on a plan for patch repairs to be made and then re-tested.
On new roofs, such testing is a robust method of quality control to show that the roof is free of defects on completion. Our roof leak detection service provides methods that quickly detect defects in a leaking roof.
