About Building Diagnostics Group
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) is a multifaceted consulting firm with extensive expertise in infrared building science and water testing procedures that enable us to identify the cause and origin of most building failures.
Robert Scherer, President of BDG, has over 25 years of residential and commercial construction experience. In 2000, he was introduced to the incredible potential of infrared thermography in the building construction industry and purchased his first infrared camera, the first in southwest Florida.
Robert became a pioneer in the field of moisture intrusion and building defect investigations with the use of infrared thermography. He is a Certified Indoor Environmentalist, Certified Mold Inspector, an ITC Certified Level III Thermographer with over 15 years of thermography experience, and is certified in Advanced Building Diagnostics.

With several infrared cameras, each designed for a specific use, Robert and his highly trained team of professionals have completed water testing and building investigations across the nation, providing the most comprehensive non-destructive building investigations available today.
Infrared Inspection Services
BDG offers services in several different roles. We often work with engineering firms during the due diligence process of an acquisition.

We are also used in litigation and insurance claims to either provide details as to the extent of the claim or provide bid specification for remedial actions. Many commercial and multi-family properties contract us to perform annual inspections to proactively protect their investment.
