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):
Due Diligence Inspections
During due diligence inspections, we inspect every facet of a property, from the foundation to the roof and everything in-between. The most significant advantage is that a prospective buyer will gain a thorough understanding of the condition of the property and can make informed decisions during a potential acquisition. This is arguably the most crucial part of the due diligence process. With a substantial investment on the line, due diligence is not the place to cut corners.
We thoroughly evaluate a building’s exterior wall system for water intrusions that may have damaged structural components and/or the exterior sheathing. These inspections are swift and cost-effective. In general, we can evaluate 10 to 15 low-rise apartments or multi-family buildings with just a few days on-site.
BDG can detect otherwise unobservable areas of water damage without the need for roof access and without disturbing building occupants. Our aerial drone thermal infrared roof inspections are perfect for determining active roof leaks during due diligence and will significantly reduce the inspection time and expense compared to conventional methods.
BDG can quickly pinpoint the exact location of interior water intrusions with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and with minimal disruption of occupants. If the building materials are dry at the time of our inspection, we can still visually document the areas that were affected to give you an accurate representation of actual damage.
Infrared thermography identifies and addresses areas where moisture intrusion and heat loss are negatively impacting building performance. Our energy audits are the fastest and most effective non-destructive method of assessing the energy efficiency of residential and commercial structures and HVAC systems.
