To keep your building in Salt Lake City, Utah watertight, safe, energy efficient, and extend its service life, infrared building inspections from Building Diagnostics Group will define costly hidden problems with the walls, windows, roof, waterproofing and structure, and ensure that the building serves its occupants as designed and intended.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG), headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is an industry leader in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions. Robert Scherer, President, is certified in Advanced Building Diagnostics and is an ITC Certified Level III Thermographer with more than 15 years of thermography experience in a wide range of applications.
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. Our expertise in infrared building science and water testing procedures enables us to identify the cause and origin of most building failures.
How Infrared Inspections Can Help
Infrared inspections detect temperature variations in the components of a building envelope, such as the roof (which is intended as a weather-tight skin), windows (which should allow sunlight in but keep rain out), walls (which should create a rain and heat/cold shield), the foundation (which is intended to keep water and frost out), and other hidden places. Inspections can reveal small defects, such as moisture leaks, energy loss and electrical malfunctions, before they escalate into major crises.
Unlike many commercial building inspection techniques, infrared imaging is completely non-invasive, which means there is minimal disruption and no risk of damaging any aspect of the property.
Other important benefits of infrared inspections include:
- Advance warning of a potential problems and system failures
- Prevent lost production time
- Increase energy efficiency
- Reduce safety incidents caused by unexpected system failures
- Reduce operating costs
- Ideal for predictive maintenance of electrical, mechanical and structural systems
BDG Inspection Services
BDG has performed services on 300+ multi-family and commercial properties and inspected in excess of over 50 million square feet. Our services have identified significant hidden building defects that have cost from $2 to $5 million dollars in underlying structural repairs and include:
Commercial roof surveys –BDG’s inspections are fast and affordable and provide a clear picture of active roof leaks and damaged areas. Our team can evaluate up to 300,000 SF in a single visit via our walk-over method, or millions of square feet by utilizing our aerial sUAS service.
Exterior building inspections – We 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.
Interior building inspections – 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 to the occupants.
Infrared building inspections by Building Diagnostics Group can rapidly identify costly hidden damage behind most commercial and multi-family building facades in Salt Lake City, Utah, and across the nation. Contact us at (888) 317-4568 to learn more about our invaluable services.
