Infrared inspections in Nashville, TN are a proven cost-effective method of maintaining the reliability of electrical and mechanical systems, and the only way to instantly detect whether water has penetrated a building envelope.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG), founded in 2002, specializes in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions on multi-family, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. We can handle any size project.
Robert Scherer, President, is certified in Advanced Building Diagnostics and is an ITC Certified Level III Thermographer, Certified Indoor Environmentalist and Certified Mold Inspector with more than 15 years of thermography experience in a wide range of applications.
Our expertise in infrared building science and water testing procedures enables us to identify the cause and origin of most building failures, and our highly trained team provides the most comprehensive thermal building investigations available today.
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 the due diligence evaluation.
Our Infrared Inspection Services
BDG can help you protect your investment with high-quality infrared building inspections that include:
Commercial Roof Inspections – Infrared inspection provides a non-contact and non-destructive method of testing for active roof leaks before they become a massive problem. BDG’s inspections are fast, affordable, and can see the unseen and pinpoint anomalies under the roofing substrate. We can evaluate up to 300,000 SF of roof area in a single visit via our walk-over method, or millions of square feet with our aerial drone service.
Exterior Building Inspections – Infrared imaging enables us to painstakingly evaluate a building’s exterior wall system for water intrusions that may have damaged the exterior sheathing and/or structural components and identify potential hidden defects. We can map areas of moisture entrapment for a wide range of cladding systems.
Interior Building Inspections – Infrared inspection is by far the best method for documenting a water loss or water intrusion event. With our extensive knowledge and use of high-resolution infrared cameras, BDG can quickly pinpoint the exact location of water intrusions with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and minimal disturbance to the building occupants.
Energy audits – Infrared thermography provides a unique opportunity to identify and address areas where heat loss and moisture intrusion are negatively impacting building performance. BDG’s energy audits are the fastest and most effective non-destructive method of assessing the energy efficiency of residential and commercial structures and HVAC systems.
Cell Fill (CMU) evaluations – Concrete Masonry Walls (CMU), commonly referred to as concrete block walls, are not structurally sound without proper rebar and grouting. Infrared technology is the most effective tool for surveying a masonry wall to detect deficiencies in the structural components.
