Building Diagnostics Group (BDG), founded in 2002, specializes in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions on multi-family, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings.
Our expertise in infrared building science and water testing procedures enables us to identify the cause and origin of most building failures, and our highly trained team provides the most comprehensive building investigations available today.
What is Infrared Thermography?
Infrared thermography (IR) uses specialized thermography cameras to measure the thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal energy is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye. Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat.
IR thermography is the only diagnostic tool that lets you instantly visualize faults due to thermal patterns, enabling you to maintain the reliability of electrical and mechanical systems and resolve issues before it is too late. Thermography also easily detects water penetrating a building envelope due to the thermal differences between wet building materials and the adjacent dry materials.
Why Choose BDG?
Robert Scherer, President of BDG, has over 25 years of residential and commercial construction experience. Since being introduced in 2002 to the incredible potential of infrared thermography in the building construction industry and purchasing an infrared camera, the first in southwest Florida, Robert has become a pioneer in the field of moisture intrusion and building defect investigations with the use of infrared thermography.
BDG uses only high-resolution FLIR SYSTEMS thermography equipment. All of our operators are also FAA Authorized Commercial sUAS Remote Drone Pilots. We have a current inventory of four sUAS specially equipped with high-resolution Zenmuse XT 640×512 radiometric infrared camera systems that are capable of producing high-resolution images and video.
