Building Diagnostics Group has performed exterior building inspections on multi-family and commercial properties in Denver, Colorado, and inspected in excess of over 50 million square feet nationwide. Our services have identified significant hidden building defects that have cost from $2 to $5 million dollars in underlying structural repairs.
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.
The expertise of our highly trained professional team in thermal infrared imagery, or infrared thermography, as well as in infrared building science and water testing procedures, is invaluable to architects, property developers, insurance companies and others.
Knowing as much as possible about a building envelope provides prospective buyers and investors with the critical information they need to identify costly hidden damage or to validate a sound investment, making exterior building inspections extremely cost-effective in the decision-making process.
About Infrared Thermography
Infrared thermography (IR) is the use of specialized equipment to measure the thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal energy is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye.
Infrared (IR) cameras, also called thermographic scanners and thermal imaging devices, measure the intensity of thermal energy being emitted by the object it is aimed at. The ability to see temperature differences can instantly detect whether water has penetrated a building envelope and provide the evidence you need to undertake repairs before a problem gets out of hand.

Building Diagnostics Group has the expertise, knowledge and experience to accurately document the structural integrity of even the most difficult projects.
We can identify potential hidden defects in many different cladding systems, from single coat stucco systems, to Exterior Insulation Finish Systems (EIFS), to siding. We are often the first to identify signs of a potentially larger problem because water intrusion from the building exterior can take years to show up on the interior, at which point extensive damage has already been done.
