Whether you are a multi-family or apartment building owner, seller, investor, lender or other stakeholder in Marietta, GA, Building Diagnostics Group can provide the infrared inspection services and reports you need for optimal decision-making.
As a multifaceted consulting firm, Building Diagnostics Group (BDG), founded in 2002, specializes in infrared building science, aerial thermography, and water testing procedures that enable us to identify the cause and origin of most roof and building failures. Our expertise is in multi-family and commercial building facade evaluations.
Traditional building inspections involve drilling holes in walls, removing whole sections of walls to install inspection ports, and other invasive and time-consuming techniques. Infrared inspections do not require these destructive testing methods.
BDG’s highly trained team of professionals is experienced with all types of building components, systems and materials. We have the knowledge and ability to perform a wide range of thermal imaging inspections locally, regionally and nationwide and can handle any size project.
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.
Multi-Family Building Inspections
All properties experience natural and manmade deterioration, but multi-family properties and apartment buildings are more complex and have more systems and features than other types of properties.
The most useful inspections uncover the true condition of the property including all of the major systems, such as roofing, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and structure. Consequently, it’s important to hire a company with extensive experience in the construction, maintenance and inspection of commercial buildings.
Infrared inspections detect temperature variations in the components of a building envelope, such as the roof (which is intended as a weather-tight skin), windows (which should allow sunlight in but keep rain out), walls (which should create a rain and heat/cold shield), foundations (which are intended to keep water and frost out), and other hidden places. Inspections can reveal small defects, such as moisture leaks, energy loss and electrical malfunctions, before they escalate into major crises.
Upon completion of your inspection, we deliver a comprehensive narrative report of our findings with deficiencies identified, photos of the deficiencies to provide visual evidence of the building’s condition that can be viewed in digital or hard-copy format, and recommendations for replacement and repair.
