Building Diagnostics Group performs infrared building inspections in Naples, FL, and across the nation. Our state-of-the-art technology and skilled team of professional thermographers combine to produce inspections of the highest quality.
Founded in 2002, Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) specializes in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions on multi-family, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. We can handle any size project.
Our proficiency in infrared building science and water testing procedures, as well as thermal infrared aerial imagery, are invaluable to architects, builders, property developers, construction managers, insurance companies and others.
Robert Scherer, President, is certified in Advanced Building Diagnostics and is an ITC Certified Level III Thermographer, Certified Indoor Environmentalist and Certified Mold Inspector with more than 15 years of thermography experience in a wide range of applications.
The highly trained BDG team’s expertise enables us to identify the cause and origin of most building failures. We are capable of performing thorough inspections on large properties in days rather than weeks. We can usually evaluate 10 to 15 low-rise apartment buildings in just a few days on site.
Due Diligence Inspections
During due diligence inspections, every facet of the property is inspected, from the roof to the foundation and everything in-between. The primary benefit is that it gives a prospective buyer a thorough understanding of the condition of the property and allows the buyer to make informed decisions during a potential acquisition. This is arguably the most crucial part of the due diligence process. With such a significant potential investment on the line, due diligence is not where you want to cut corners.
Exterior Building Inspections
BDG can thoroughly evaluate a building’s exterior wall system for water intrusions that may have damaged the exterior sheathing and/or structural components. We have the ability to identify potential hidden defects in many different cladding systems, from single coat stucco systems to Exterior Insulation Finish Systems (EIFS) to siding. 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, BDG is often the first to identify signs of larger, potentially very costly, problems.
Aerial Roof Inspections
BDG’s aerial drone thermal infrared roof inspections are ideal for determining active roof leaks and can significantly reduce the time and expense of commercial roof inspections when compared to conventional methods. This thermal imaging service is performed just after sunset to detect warm trapped moisture under the roofing membrane. We can detect otherwise unobservable areas of water damage without requiring roof access or causing disruption to the occupants of the building.
