Protect your property investment with high-quality infrared building inspections in Atlanta and across the nation from Building Diagnostics Group.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) is a multifaceted consulting firm with extensive experience in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions. Our expertise in infrared building science and water testing procedures enables us to identify the cause and origin of most building failures.
The highly trained BDG team has the knowledge and ability to perform a wide range of thermal imaging inspections locally, regionally and nationwide and can handle any size project.
BDG can work with you during the due diligence process of an acquisition. We are also used in litigation and insurance claims to either provide details as to the extent of the claim or provide bid specification for remedial actions. Many commercial and multi-family properties contract us to perform annual inspections to proactively protect their investments.
What is Infrared Thermography?
Infrared thermography (IR) uses specialized thermography cameras to measure the thermal energy emitted from an object. It 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 that is penetrating a building envelope due to the thermal differences between wet building materials and the adjacent dry materials.
This powerful non-invasive tool is well-suited to a wide range of property inspection applications that might otherwise require destructive contact.
The applications for thermography in commercial property inspections are endless. Our services include (but are not limited to):
Commercial Roof Surveys – Infrared roof inspections find active roof leaks before they turn into massive problems. With IR, we can see the unseen and pinpoint anomalies beneath the roofing substrate. BDG’s inspections are fast, affordable, and our team can evaluate up to 300,000 SF of roof area in a single visit via our walk-over method, or millions of square feet with our aerial drone service.
Interior Building Inspections – Infrared thermography is by far the best method for the documentation of a water loss or water intrusion event. We can quickly pinpoint the exact location of water intrusions with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and with minimal disturbance to the occupants.
Exterior Building Inspections – Infrared imaging enables BDG to thoroughly evaluate a building’s exterior wall system for water intrusions that may have damaged the exterior sheathing and/or structural components and effectively identify potential hidden defects. We can map areas of moisture entrapment and delimitation due to environmental stress for a wide range of cladding systems.
Energy audits –BDG’s energy audits are the fastest and most effective non-destructive method of assessing the energy efficiency of residential and commercial structures and HVAC systems. We can identify and address areas where heat loss and moisture intrusion are negatively impacting building performance.
