Building Diagnostics Group specializes in nationwide infrared inspection services. Our inspections are vital to architects, builders, property developers, construction managers and others, and our team is capable of handling any size project.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG), founded in 2002 and headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is a multifaceted consulting firm that specializes in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions on multi-family, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings.
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 its overall condition and the need, if any, for additional services to complete the due diligence evaluation.
It’s rare, of course, for any building to be in perfect condition, and we often find hidden deficiencies in newer properties, such as unfinished roofing membranes; missing flashing or counterflashing; installation of the wrong HVAC equipment; improperly attached or insulated pipes; improperly installed electrical outlets and switches; and reversed or leaking plumbing fixtures, among others issues.

A Few of Our Infrared Inspection Services
Exterior building inspections: BDG inspects building exterior wall systems for water intrusions that may have damaged the exterior sheathing and/or structural components, and identifies potential hidden defects. Infrared imaging is useful for a variety of cladding systems, from single coat stucco systems, to Exterior Insulation Finish Systems (EIFS), to siding. Our exterior building surveys are extremely fast and cost-effective. BDG can typically evaluate 10 to 15 low-rise apartment buildings in just a few days on site.
Interior building inspections: Infrared thermography is the very best method for documenting a water loss or water intrusion event. With our expertise and use of high resolution infrared cameras, BDG can quickly pinpoint the exact location of interior water intrusions with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and with minimal disturbance to the occupants.
Roof inspections: BDG’s aerial drone thermal infrared roof inspections are ideal for determining active roof leaks and can significantly reduce the time and expense of commercial roof inspections when compared to conventional methods. We perform this thermal imaging service just after sunset to detect warm trapped moisture under the roofing membrane. We can evaluate millions of square feet in a single visit, or 300,000 SF via the conventional walk-over method.
