When you need to identify potential water intrusion issues in your multi-family, commercial, industrial or institutional building in San Antonio, TX before the problem becomes serious, infrared inspections by Building Diagnostics Group can help.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG), headquartered in Atlanta, GA, is a multifaceted consulting firm. Our proficiency in infrared building science and water testing procedures, as well as thermal infrared aerial imagery, are invaluable to architects, builders, property developers, construction managers, insurance companies and others.
We are specialists in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions on buildings throughout the U.S. and provide the most comprehensive non-destructive building investigations available today.
Why Choose Infrared Inspection?
Traditional building inspection techniques involve drilling holes in walls, removing whole sections of walls to install inspection ports, and other time-consuming and invasive techniques. With infrared technology, these destructive testing methods are unnecessary.
Infrared thermography (IR) is a passive heat-sensing technique used to “see” and “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.
Thermography is a proven cost-effective, non-destructive tool in maintaining the reliability of electrical and mechanical systems because nearly everything that uses or transmits power overheats before it fails. Also, due to the temperature differences between wet building materials and adjacent dry materials, infrared thermography is the only diagnostic tool that instantly detects whether water has penetrated a building envelope.
BDG exclusively uses FLIR infrared camera equipment. FLIR is the world’s leader in infrared technology. Using only high resolution, our specialty thermography equipment has enabled us to become one of the nation’s leaders in building science thermography.
