BDG can help you protect your investment with high-quality infrared building inspections that include (but are not limited to):
Commercial Roof Inspections – Infrared inspection provides a non-destructive way to test for active roof leaks before they develop into a huge problem. BDG’s inspections are fast, affordable, and can see unseen anomalies under the roofing substrate. We can evaluate up to 300,000 SF of roof area in one visit via our walk-over method, or millions of square feet with our aerial drone roof inspections.
Exterior Building Inspections – BDG can thoroughly evaluate a building’s exterior wall system for water intrusions that may have damaged the exterior sheathing and/or structural components and effectively identify potential hidden defects.
Interior Building Inspections – Infrared inspection is the very 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 without disassembling the premises and with minimal disturbance to building occupants.
Energy audits – Infrared thermography enables us to identify and address areas where moisture intrusion and heat loss are negatively impacting building performance. These energy audits are the fastest and most effective non-destructive method of assessing the energy efficiency of residential and commercial structures and HVAC systems.
BDG has performed inspection services on 300+ multi-family properties and apartment buildings in excess of 50 million square feet and identified significant hidden building defects that resulted in millions of dollars in underlying structural repairs.
If you are concerned about the time it may take to complete an in-depth inspection, BDG is able to quickly perform thorough and accurate surveys on large properties. For example, we can evaluate 10 to 15 low-rise apartment buildings in just a few days on site.
