The Imperative of Preventive Inspection: A Case Study on a 250,000 Sq Ft Building


In the realm of building envelope, a preventative inspection is not just a recommended practice—it’s a necessity. Overlooking this critical aspect can lead to expensive repairs, compromised safety, and an impaired lifespan of the building. At Leak Doctor, we recently undertook a preventive roof inspection of a 250,000 sqft building, setting a precedent for how such projects should be approached. Here's why your organization should consider preventive inspections and what you can learn from our recent project.

Why Preventative Care?

Preventive inspections serve as a critical checkpoint for any facility. They allow experts to:

  1. Identify Vulnerabilities: Discover potential weak spots before they turn into major issues.

  2. Extend Lifespan: Proper care can significantly lengthen the service life of building components.

  3. Cost Savings: Addressing issues early on prevents costly, unplanned emergency repairs.

  4. Efficiency and Sustainability: A well-maintained roof contributes to energy savings, making the building more sustainable.

A Deeper Dive into Our Latest Project

The Team

Our seasoned team included three expert inspectors. One of them brought a staggering 32 years of experience in design, inspection, and consulting to the table. Their cumulative wisdom and skills ensure an inspection process that leaves no stone unturned.

The Technology

For this project, we leveraged state-of-the-art inspection tools:

  1. High-definition thermal cameras mounted on drones: These provide an aerial overview, allowing for a broader and more detailed inspection scope.

  2. Hand-held thermal cameras: These were used for close-up, targeted assessments.

  3. Roof Moisture Scanners: A specialized tool to detect moisture, a common root cause of structural damage.

Execution and Outcome

The inspection process was executed flawlessly, allowing us to furnish the client with a comprehensive understanding of their building envelope's condition. Issues were pinpointed, assessments were made, and remedial actions were recommended.

The Leak Doctor Guarantee

Our approach to inspections doesn't just identify problems—it guarantees solutions. We offer actionable insights and timely interventions that save our clients from potential headaches down the line.


When it comes to the longevity and health of your building, a preventative roof inspection is not a luxury; it’s an imperative. Through our latest project, we aimed to underscore the irreplaceable value of combining expertise with technology.

Opt for preventative care. Choose Leak Doctor for all your building envelope needs because, in this game, prevention is not just better than cure; it’s more cost-effective and strategic too.
