Expert Witness Testimony
An expert witness, by definition, is someone who, by virtue of education, training, skill, or experience, is believed to have knowledge in a subject beyond that of the average person. BDG is the leader in infrared thermography for building science applications
Forensic Water Intrusion
Our systematic approach to a project includes an initial evaluation, full service history review, identifying physical symptoms, visual inspection of reported intrusions, developing a hypothesis, recreating leaks simulating normal rainfall, tracing and correlating intrusions, verifying the hypothesis, providing a final analysis and accurately reporting through field documentation.
We specialize in construction defect investigations, water intrusion (cause & origin), commercial roofing defects, hurricane/storm water impact documentation, and complete indoor environmental investigations. Our Certified Building Science Thermographers (CBST) are the best in the industry, using only the latest in high-resolution equipment from FLIR Systems.
Water Damage Survey
Traditional methods of photographs and moisture meters do not always reveal the extent of the damage or provide visual documentation. Infrared cameras can distinguish between wet and dry by measuring the thermal characteristics of wet materials and can provide a vivid image of moisture damage.
DNA Water Impact Study
BDG utilizes an inspection technique that provides irrefutable evidence for water impact investigations. Through the use of advanced thermal imaging techniques and DNA laboratory analysis we can identify historical water loss data by identifying the DNA fingerprints of “signature” water infiltration molds.
