Building Diagnostics Group provides infrared inspections for multi-family and commercial properties in McAllen, TX, and across the nation. Our highly skilled team has saved clients thousands of dollars by discovering deficient areas within their buildings.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) is a multifaceted consulting firm with extensive expertise in infrared building science and water testing procedures that enable us to identify the cause and origin of most building failures.
Robert Scherer, President of BDG, has over 25 years of residential and commercial construction experience. In 2000, he was introduced to the incredible potential of infrared thermography in the building construction industry and purchased his first infrared camera, the first in southwest Florida.
Robert became a pioneer in the field of moisture intrusion and building defect investigations with the use of infrared thermography. He is a Certified Indoor Environmentalist, Certified Mold Inspector, an ITC Certified Level III Thermographer with over 15 years of thermography experience, and is certified in Advanced Building Diagnostics.
Benefits of Infrared Inspections
Knowing as much as possible about a property gives prospective buyers and investors the critical information they need to identify costly hidden damage or validate a sound investment. This makes infrared building inspections an extremely cost-effective part of the decision-making process.
Unlike many commercial building inspection techniques, infrared inspections are completely non-invasive, which means there is no risk of damaging any aspect of the property and minimal disruption.
Other benefits include:
- Advance warning of a potential problems and system failures
- Prevent lost production time
- Increase energy efficiency
- Reduce safety incidents caused by unexpected system failures
- Reduce operating costs
- Ideal for predictive maintenance of electrical, mechanical and structural systems
Our Infrared Inspection Services
BDG offers services in several different roles. We often work 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 as to the overall condition and the need, if any, for additional services to complete the due diligence of a property.
We are also used in litigation and insurance claims to either provide details as to the extent of the claim or provide bid specification for remedial actions. Many commercial and multi-family properties contract us to perform annual inspections to proactively protect their investment.
Our services include:
- Exterior building inspections
- Interior building inspections
- Commercial roof surveys
- Aerial infrared roof inspections
- Aerial infrared solar panel inspections
- Aerial tower and structure inspections
