Take advantage of infrared building inspections in Jacksonville, Florida by Building Diagnostics Group to understand the structural integrity of your multi-family or commercial building and make informed decisions.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) is a multifaceted consulting firm with an unparalleled expertise in infrared building science and water testing procedures that enables us to identify the cause and origin of most building failures.
Our highly trained team of professionals uses only high-resolution FLIR SYSTEMS thermography equipment with several different camera systems, including a Zenmuse XT 640×512 resolution radiometric infrared camera, each for a specific use and calibrated for specific targets.
BDG offers services in several different roles. We often work with engineering firms during the due diligence process of an acquisition and are typically the first to inspect the exterior of a property, providing insight as to the overall condition and the need, if any, for additional services.
Wide Range of IR Inspection Services
BDG has the expertise, knowledge, and experience to accurately detect deficiencies and document the structural integrity of even the most difficult projects. Our infrared inspection services include, but are not limited to:
Commercial roof surveys – BDG’s roof inspections are fast, affordable, non-destructive, and provide a clear picture of water-damaged areas. We pinpoint problem areas in need of repair to help you avoid expensive roof replacements. Our team can evaluate up to 300,000 SF of roof area in a single visit via our walk-over method or quickly evaluate millions of square feet by means of our aerial sUAS service.
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 and effectively identify potential hidden defects. It can be used for many different cladding systems, from single-coat stucco systems to exterior insulating finish systems (EIFS) to siding.
EIFS inspections – Moisture retention and leaks behind walls, over ceilings, and under floors is often impossible to detect until the problem has become serious. 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.
Cell Fill (CMU) evaluations – Concrete Masonry Walls (CMU), commonly known as concrete block walls, are not structurally sound and dangerous without proper rebar and grouting. Infrared technology is a fast, inexpensive, and effective tool for surveying a masonry wall to detect deficiencies in the structural components.
Interior building inspections – Moisture in building materials can destroy structural integrity as well as harbor mold and insect infestations. 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 of the occupants.
Energy audits – Infrared thermography identifies areas where heat loss and moisture intrusion are negatively impacting building performance. BDG’s energy audits are the fastest and most effective non-destructive method of assessing the energy efficiency of residential and commercial structures and HVAC systems.
