Infrared Thermography (IR) Inspection
Infrared thermography (IR) uses 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.
IR can easily detect water penetrating a building envelope and is the only diagnostic tool that enables you to instantly identify abnormally warm or cool areas that indicate moisture intrusion, insulation deficiencies, and other energy losses.
BDG employs only high-resolution FLIR SYSTEMS thermography equipment and utilizes several different camera systems, including a Zenmuse XT 640×512 resolution radiometric infrared camera, each for a specific use and calibrated for specific targets.
We are experts in multi-family and commercial building facade evaluations. With our proven inspection techniques and high-resolution infrared thermography, we can rapidly identify costly hidden damage behind most facades.
We identify potential hidden defects in many different cladding systems, and 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.
BDG has performed inspection services on 300+ multi-family and commercial properties in excess of 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.
