Infrared Building Inspections San Jose, California

Let Building Diagnostics Group put our expertise in infrared building inspections to work for you in San Jose, California, or elsewhere in the U.S., to uncover the sources, not just the symptoms, of water intrusion.

Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) is a multifaceted consulting firm with extensive experience in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions.

Our highly trained team of professionals is experienced with all types of building components, systems and materials. We have the knowledge and ability to perform a wide range of thermal imaging inspections locally, regionally and nationwide and can handle any size project.

We offer services in a variety of different roles, often working with engineering firms during the due diligence process of an acquisition. We are typically the first to inspect the exterior of a property, providing insight about the overall condition and the need, if any, for additional services to complete a due diligence evaluation.

What is Infrared Thermography?

Infrared thermography (IR) is the science of infrared imaging. Infrared radiation is emitted by all objects, and the amount of radiation increases with temperature. Thermographic cameras detect this radiation in a similar way as an ordinary camera detects visible light. The radiation is converted into visible high-resolution images that make it possible to “see” variations in temperature with or without visible illumination.

BDG’s infrared building inspection services include exterior building inspections, interior building inspections, commercial roof surveys, cell fill (CMU) evaluations, EIFS inspections, electrical inspections, energy audits, and more.

With our proven inspection techniques and high-resolution infrared thermography expertise, we can quickly identify costly hidden damage behind most facades. This provides the building owner or buyer with an accurate understanding of its structural integrity in order to make informed decisions.

Benefits of Infrared Inspections

  • Fast, reliable, accurate detection of energy loss, moisture and electrical issues
  • Advance warning of a potential problems and system failures
  • Non-invasive and non-destructive
  • More accurate inspection results
  • Minimal interference with building occupants
  • Facility shutdown not required
  • Helps prevent unscheduled downtime
  • Ideal for predictive maintenance of electrical, mechanical and structural systems
  • Cost savings

Aerial Infrared Inspections

BDG also has an inventory of four commercial FLIR-equipped DJI Inspire and Matrice drones mounted with high-resolution infrared camera systems that can detect building defects beyond the visible inspection, identifying potential problems that could cost thousands of dollars to repair.

We are FAA-authorized to perform nighttime aerial operations with an approved Daylight Operation Waiver under 14 CFR § 107.29. The waiver allows us to perform aerial infrared roof inspections throughout the United States.
