Our Comprehensive Services
Inspections will uncover the real condition of a property, including all of the major systems, such as roofing, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and structure. Consequently, it’s essential to hire a company like BDG with extensive experience in the construction, maintenance, and inspection of commercial buildings.
We can rapidly identify hidden damage and provide you with an independent analysis of your building’s structural integrity. Inspections include (but are not limited to):
Commercial roof surveys – Infrared roof inspections are a non-contact and non-destructive testing method to determine active roof leaks. BDG’s inspections are fast and affordable and provide a clear picture of damaged areas. Our team can evaluate up to 300,000 SF of roof area in a single visit via our walk-over method, or evaluate millions of square feet by utilizing our aerial sUAS service.
Exterior building inspections –Our exterior building surveys are extremely fast and cost-effective at identifying potential hidden defects in many different cladding systems. BDG can typically evaluate 10 to 15 low-rise apartment buildings in just a few days on site.
Interior building inspections – With our extensive knowledge and use of high-resolution infrared cameras, we can quickly pinpoint the exact location of water intrusions without disassembling the premises or disturbing the occupants.
Cell Fill (CMU) evaluations – Concrete Masonry Walls (CMU) are not structurally sound without proper rebar and grouting. Infrared technology is an excellent tool for surveying a masonry wall to find deficiencies in the structural components.
EIFS inspections – Our water infiltration analysis, pre-purchase and construction services provide moisture analysis of any structure with EIFS or stucco cladding to find excessive moisture content in the structural cavities and framing.
Energy audits – BDG performs energy audits that will identify heat loss and improper/inadequate insulation installation in residential and commercial structures. Many residential and commercial builders are now using thermography to achieve HERS ratings on new homes and buildings.
