About 40 percent of all commercial roofs will develop leaks within the first year of service. Infrared roof inspection services in Alpharetta, Georgia from Building Diagnostics Group can identify leaks and costly hidden damage.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) is a multifaceted consulting firm that specializes in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions on multi-family, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings across the nation. Our expertise in infrared building science and water testing procedures enables us to identify the cause and origin of most roof and building failures.
About Roof Inspection
Conventional roof inspection methods require a time-consuming grid-type contact search (capacitance testing) that involves drilling holes (core sampling) in the roof membrane.
Instead of damaging parts of the roof system, take advantage of BDG’s non-contact, non-destructive infrared roof inspections that can provide far more accurate observations of the condition of an existing roofing system.
The BDG team of certified thermographers and engineering/architectural specialists have the ability to evaluate up to 300,000 SF of roof area in a single visit via our walk-over method, or evaluate millions of square feet by utilizing our aerial drone service. We provide the most comprehensive non-destructive inspections available today.
We are FAA-authorized commercial drone remote pilots with a current inventory of four drones specially equipped with high-resolution infrared camera systems. We are also FAA-authorized to perform nighttime aerial operations with an approved Daylight Operation Waiver under 14 CFR § 107.29, allowing us to perform aerial infrared roof inspections throughout the United States.
Infrared Walk-Over Inspections: BDG’s visual photographic roof inspections use professional grade infrared camera equipment to capture high-resolution digital images. The inspector systematically walks the low slope roof, typically at night, looking for normally invisible cooler areas that are typical of wet insulation, ensuring that the entire surface is inspected.
Infrared Aerial Inspections: BDG’s aerial drone thermal infrared roof inspections can significantly reduce the time and expense of commercial roof inspections in comparison to conventional methods. We perform this service just after sunset to detect warm trapped moisture under the roofing membrane. Our infrared roof inspections will catch minor moisture penetrations before they have a chance to escalate into costly repairs.
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 about the overall condition and the need, if any, for additional services to complete the due diligence evaluation.
Many commercial and multi-family properties contract us to perform annual inspections to proactively protect their investments, including annual roof inspections. We are also used in conjunction with litigation and insurance claims to either provide details as to the extent of the claim or provide bid specification for remedial actions.
