Infrared inspections performed by Building Diagnostics Group can uncover the sources, not just the symptoms, of water intrusion in your Augusta, GA commercial or multi-family property.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In addition to aerial drone roof inspections, BDG offers other aerial inspection services, such as aerial thermography for solar panel field evaluations, aerial tower and structure inspections, construction site monitoring and aerial drone photography services.
