Building Diagnostics Group has the expertise, knowledge and experience to accurately document the structural integrity of even the most difficult projects in Olympia, WA. Our infrared inspections have identified hidden building defects that have resulted in millions of dollars of underlying structural repairs.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG), headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, specializes in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions on multi-family, commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings throughout the nation.
Our team has performed inspection services on hundreds of properties and inspected in excess of 75 million square feet. In 2018 alone, we inspected 92 properties in 19 states (41 cities) that totaled more than 26 million square feet.
Due Diligence Inspections
During due diligence inspections, every facet of the property is inspected, from the roof to the foundation and everything in-between. The primary benefit is that it gives a prospective buyer a thorough understanding of the condition of the property and allows the buyer to make informed decisions during a potential acquisition. This is arguably the most crucial part of the due diligence process. With such a significant potential investment on the line, due diligence is not where you want to cut corners.
Exterior Building Inspections
BDG can thoroughly evaluate a building’s exterior wall system for water intrusions that may have damaged the exterior sheathing and/or structural components. We can identify potential hidden defects in many different cladding systems, from single coat stucco systems to Exterior Insulation Finish Systems (EIFS) to siding. Because water intrusion from the building exterior can take years to show up on the interior, at which point extensive damage has already been done, BDG is often the first to identify signs of larger, potentially very costly, problems.
Interior Building Inspections
BDG can quickly pinpoint the exact location of interior water intrusions with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and with minimal disruption of occupants. If the building materials are dry at the time of our inspection, we can still visually document the areas that were affected to give you an accurate representation of actual damage.
Aerial Roof Inspections
BDG’s aerial drone thermal infrared roof inspections are ideal for determining active roof leaks and can significantly reduce the time and expense of commercial roof inspections when compared to conventional methods. This thermal imaging service is performed just after sunset to detect warm trapped moisture under the roofing membrane. We can detect otherwise unobservable areas of water damage without requiring roof access or causing disruption to the occupants of the building.
