When you need a reliable assessment of the physical state of a multi-family or commercial property you intend to purchase, invest in, sell or insure, a property condition survey from Building Diagnostics Group can identify costly hidden damage or validate a sound investment.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) specializes in aerial thermography and the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions on multi-family, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings throughout the nation. Our state-of-the-art technology and skilled team of professional thermographers combine to produce inspections of the highest quality.
Exterior cladding surveys are extremely cost effective and allow BDG to perform thorough and accurate surveys on large properties in days, not weeks. Typically, we can evaluate 10 to 15 low-rise apartment buildings in just a few days on site.
Infrared imaging enables us to evaluate the condition of exterior cladding systems by mapping areas of moisture entrapment and delimitation due to environmental stress. It can be used for many different cladding systems, from single coat stucco systems, to Exterior Insulation Finish Systems (EIFS), to siding.
BDG’s exterior and interior building inspections are all typically non-destructive, unlike sounding and other testing methods, and will not disturb occupants. Our experience in this specialized service is second to none!

What to Expect from a Property Condition Assessment
A Property Condition Assessment (PCA) is an inspection of an asset that identifies any physical defects and deferred maintenance issues that could potentially affect its value.
The inspector visits the site and spends several hours (or days) doing a walk-through of the property and inspecting the building envelope, structural systems, HVAC systems, electrical systems, plumbing and more.
For each deficiency found, clients receive a report that fully describes the concerns or defects found during the inspection, with photo documentation and an estimate of repair costs. Inspection reports can be customized to meet a client’s requirements based on how the report will be used and its intended audience.
