Infrared Detection of Roof Leak  | Home Inspector Seatte Bellevue Everett

Below is an infrared image that clearly shows a roof leak at this vaulted ceiling.

Infrared roof leak

The straight vertical darker areas are the wood ceiling rafters. The random line between the rafters is evidence of the roof leak. The dark blue area is where the moisture collects at the top plate of the wall. There are also moisture stains on the drywall and building siding at the exterior below this area.

Unfortunately the roof leak was the minor problem. The home has consistent annual flooding from the adjacent river.
