Thermal building inspections are a proven cost-effective method of maintaining the reliability of electrical and mechanical systems, and the only way to instantly detect whether water has penetrated a building envelope.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) is a multifaceted consulting firm with extensive experience in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions. Our highly trained team of professionals 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 provides the highest quality infrared and digital imagery in the industry. We use only high-resolution FLIR SYSTEMS thermography equipment and utilize several different camera systems, including a Zenmuse XT 640×512 resolution radiometric infrared camera, each for a specific use and calibrated for specific targets.
We offer services in a variety of different roles, often working with engineering firms during the due diligence process of an acquisition. We are typically the first to inspect the exterior of a property, providing insight about the overall condition and the need, if any, for additional services to complete the due diligence evaluation.
Thermal Imaging Inspection Services
BDG will help you protect your investment with high-quality infrared building inspections that include:
Exterior Building Inspections – Infrared imaging allows us 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 many different cladding systems.
Commercial Roof Inspections – Infrared roof inspections are a non-contact and non-destructive testing method of finding active roof leaks before they become a massive problem. BDG’s inspections are fast, affordable, and can see the unseen and pin point anomalies beneath the roofing substrate. 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. With our extensive knowledge and use of high resolution infrared cameras, 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.
EIFS Inspections – Moisture retention and leaks behind walls, over ceilings, and under floors is often impossible to detect until the problem is serious enough to become visible to the naked eye. BDG’s water infiltration analysis, pre-purchase and construction services provide moisture analysis of any structure with exterior insulating finish systems (EIFS) or stucco cladding to find excessive moisture content in the structural cavities and framing.
