Infrared inspections by Building Diagnostics Group can quickly and efficiently identify water intrusion problems in your multi-family, commercial, industrial or institutional building in Beaumont, TX. Our expertise in infrared building science is invaluable to architects, builders, property developers, construction managers, insurance companies, and others.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) is a consulting firm that specializes in infrared building science and water testing procedures that enable us to identify the cause and origin of most building failures.
Robert Scherer, President of BDG, has over 25 years of residential and commercial construction experience. In 2000, he was introduced to the incredible potential of infrared thermography in the building construction industry and purchased his first infrared camera, the first in southwest Florida.
Robert became a pioneer in the field of moisture intrusion and building defect investigations with the use of infrared thermography. He is a Certified Indoor Environmentalist, Certified Mold Inspector, an ITC Certified Level III Thermographer with over 15 years of thermography experience, and is certified in Advanced Building Diagnostics.
BDG’s infrared building inspection services include exterior building inspections, interior building inspections, commercial roof surveys, electrical inspections, energy audits, cell fill (CMU) evaluations, EIFS inspections, and more.
Our highly trained team of professionals uses only high-resolution FLIR SYSTEMS thermography equipment with several different camera systems, including a Zenmuse XT 640×512 resolution radiometric infrared camera, each for a specific use and calibrated for specific targets.
Benefits of Infrared Inspections
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.
Infrared inspections detect temperature variations in a building envelope, providing quick and accurate detection of moisture leaks, energy loss and electrical malfunctions in walls, under floors and in other hidden places. Inspections can reveal small defects before they escalate into major crises.
Unlike many commercial building inspection techniques, infrared imaging is completely non-invasive, which means there is no risk of damaging any aspect of the property and minimal disruption.
Infrared inspections provide advance warning of potential problems and system failures. They also help:
- Improve energy efficiency
- Reduce safety incidents caused by unexpected system failures
- Prevent lost production time
- Reduce operating costs
- Enhance predictive maintenance of electrical, mechanical and structural systems
Infrared inspections are ideal during due diligence of commercial or multi-family property acquisitions. Many property owners contract us to perform annual inspections to proactively protect their investments.
