Infrared roof leak detection services from Building Diagnostics Group include inspecting and documenting areas of moisture-related damage on the roof of your Atlanta, Georgia commercial building and providing repair recommendations.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) is a multifaceted consulting firm that specializes in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions on multi-family, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings throughout the nation. Our expertise in infrared building science and water testing procedures enables us to identify the cause and origin of most roof and building failures.
About Roof Inspection
Conventional roof inspection methods require a time-consuming grid-type contact search (capacitance testing) that involves drilling holes (core sampling) in the roof membrane.
Instead of damaging parts of the roof system, take advantage of BDG’s non-contact, non-destructive infrared roof inspections that can provide far more accurate observations of the condition of an existing roofing system.
Thermography provides a means for viewing building and roof systems under normal operating conditions to identify abnormally warm or cool areas that indicate moisture intrusion, insulation deficiencies and energy losses. Our state-of-the-art technology and skilled team of professional thermographers combine to produce inspections of the highest quality.
The BDG team of certified thermographers and engineering/architectural specialists have the ability to evaluate up to 300,000 SF of roof area in a single visit via our walk-over method, or evaluate millions of square feet by utilizing our aerial drone service. We provide the most comprehensive non-destructive inspections available today.
We are FAA-authorized commercial drone remote pilots with a current inventory of four drones specially equipped with high-resolution infrared camera systems. We are also FAA-authorized to perform nighttime aerial operations with an approved Daylight Operation Waiver under 14 CFR § 107.29, allowing us to perform aerial infrared roof inspections throughout the United States.
Infrared Walk-Over Inspections: BDG’s visual photographic roof inspections use professional grade infrared camera equipment to capture high-resolution digital images. The inspector systematically walks the low slope roof, typically at night, looking for normally invisible cooler areas that are typical of wet insulation, ensuring that the entire surface is inspected.
Infrared Aerial Inspections: BDG’s aerial drone thermal infrared roof inspections can significantly reduce the time and expense of commercial roof inspections in comparison to conventional methods. We perform this service just after sunset to detect warm trapped moisture under the roofing membrane. Our infrared roof inspections will catch minor moisture penetrations before they have a chance to escalate into costly repairs.
In addition to infrared roof inspection, our wide range of services include:
- Exterior building inspections
- Interior building inspections
- Aerial infrared solar panel inspections
- Aerial tower and structure inspections
- Cell Fill (CMU) evaluations
- EIFS inspections
- Energy audits
- Electrical inspections
- Construction site monitoring
A roof leak can be impossible to detect until the problem is excessive and visible to the naked eye. Take advantage of infrared roof leak detection in Atlanta by calling Building Diagnostics Group at (404) 946-9939. You can rely on us for accurate results.
