In the roofing and restoration business, we receive calls from clients for a roof leak, pipe burst, house fire and other problems related to damage in their home. More often than not, after doing further investigation we find the original source of the problem isn’t what the homeowner may have thought.


A thermal imagining camera, or thermography, uses infrared imaging to measure the energy that is emitted from a particular object. In other words, we can see into an area, such as a wall, that we typically could not see. The images produced appear in a heat map on the camera, measuring the level of heat coming from a certain area. For example, if a corner of your home has a potential leak in the ceiling, using a thermal imagining camera will allow us look deeper into the area and identify the potential cause.

At Bloomfield Construction, we see a number of these cases every week. For example, in the picture to the left, a customer called with a roof leak. Using the thermo imagining camera, we were able to identify that the cause was some missing insulation in the form of condensation. Another example was a customer who called for water pooling damage in their ceiling. Again, we were able to identify the cause was an ice dam using our technology.

At Bloomfield Construction, we utilize the latest technologies to help boost productivity and efficiency. We believe that more work in less time brings our customers more value for each dollar invested. Our use of thermography allows us to be cost-effective in diagnosing the cause of a variety of problem.

If you experience a leak from an unknown cause, such as an ice dam, a broken water pipe or from a shingle missing, give us a call. Have questions about thermal imagining or want to request an estimate? Contact us today.
