Are you looking for a roof leak detection specialist?
Every homeowner knows the unease that a leaking roof can bring. Isn’t the core purpose of a roof to protect and shield your loved ones from the harsh UK rain and inclement weather.
A minor drip can cause major water damage to your property.
The real challenge is finding the source of that leak, because only by identifying the source can a true repair be made.
There’s no better contractor than ADI Leak Detection to champion this cause? As the trailblazing pioneers of leak detection in the United Kingdom, ADI hasn’t just mastered the craft; we have essentially sculpted the industry standard.
Enhance your peace of mind. Trust in ADI Leak Detection’s proven expertise to ensure your home remains the sanctuary it’s meant to be.
Flat roofs are more susceptible to developing leaks compared to pitched roofs.
The presence of a leak in the roof may become evident through associated symptoms within the property, such as stained ceilings, moisture and mold.
Pinpointing the exact source of the leak can be a challenging task. The leak detection experts at ADI employ a range of methods and specialized equipment to swiftly identify the origin of the leak.
Commercial Roof Leaks can result in significant financial losses for your business, potentially running into thousands of pounds, including damage to your inventory, all within a remarkably short time frame.
Given the substantial size of most commercial roofs, gaining access and pinpointing the precise source of the leak can pose considerable challenges.
When it comes to commercial properties, any delay in identifying a leak, regardless of its size, can be costly. That's why it's crucial to summon the expertise of professionals without delay.
The majority of homes in the United Kingdom feature pitched tiled roofs, which is why we are frequently summoned to locate and resolve leaks in such roofing systems.
While prevention is always the preferred approach, people reach out to ADI when they've already encountered a leak. Our skilled and seasoned technicians are adept at promptly identifying leaks of any size in pitched tiled roofs, alleviating a great deal of stress, hassle, and concern.
In the process of roof leak detection, tracer gases play a pivotal role in confirming the suspected source of a roof leak or multiple roof leaks. Tracer gases, typically a mixture of Hydrogen and Nitrogen, are introduced into the roof void. They ascend through any unsealed gaps or openings. On the roof's surface, we employ specialized tracer gas detectors, often referred to as sniffer devices, to identify and pinpoint the tracer gas as it escapes from the location of the leak.

These tracer gases, typically a blend of Hydrogen and Nitrogen, are introduced into the roof void. They rise through any unsealed gaps or openings present.
On the roof's surface, we utilize specialized tracer gas detectors, commonly known as sniffer devices, to identify and precisely locate the tracer gas as it escapes from the point of the leak.
When access isn't a concern, another valuable option at the disposal of our engineers is the use of Electronic Roof Leak Detectors. This specialized high-tech equipment is adept at identifying and pinpointing holes, leaks, or defects in your flat roof. The process involves passing a low-level electrical charge through the roof membrane. When the charge encounters an area with a leak, it naturally discharges or "earths out," allowing our engineers to precisely locate the leak or leaks.
This leak detection method is effective on both horizontal surfaces and upstands, provided that the membrane extends up the wall. This feature is particularly important because leaks often originate in the folded corners where the membrane transitions from the flat roof to the wall.
Several key advantages are associated with this detection method. Once again, it's non-invasive, causing no damage to the membrane itself. It is compatible with most roof membranes, offering versatility. It boasts high accuracy, capable of detecting even minuscule pinhole leaks, and it is also rapid and efficient in its operation.
