Expert Aerial Inspection Services
Commercial Roof Inspections
Aerial thermal infrared commercial roof inspections are ideal for detecting active roof leaks and are significantly faster and less expensive than conventional roof inspections. Our team can quickly evaluate millions of square feet and provide visual images of water saturation without roof access or disruption of building occupants.
Solar Panel Inspections
Regular inspections of solar panels are important for efficient power generation, long service life, and high returns on investment. Traditional manual site inspections typically require a technician to search each panel for issues, requiring extensive time and resources. One drone flight can map the site quickly and with unparalleled accuracy. BDG performs aerial thermal solar panel inspections, from new installations to annual inspections.
Aerial Tower & Structure Inspections
Tower climbing is a dangerous job. The use of small, easily maneuverable drones that can see virtually every angle of a structure is a safe, efficient and cost-effective method of assessing visible deficiencies, documenting the condition of the existing coating, determining hardware failures, and providing general overall tower conditions. BDG provides high-resolution digital photography and aerial infrared tower and structure inspections to help maintain, build, or modify water tower structures, cell towers, and other elevated structures.
Aerial Construction Site Monitoring
Building and construction site aerial drone inspections can be a simple, one-time aerial image or multiple images over a specific period. Aerial site data is collected at predetermined intervals or during specific project milestones. The data capture requires no direct interaction with the site and allows work to continue undisturbed.
