Not all roof damage is visible to the naked eye. Infrared roof inspection services from Building Diagnostics Group will detect and document areas of moisture-related damage on the roof of your Augusta, Georgia commercial building and provide repair recommendations.
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 throughout the nation. We combine state of the art technology with a skilled team of professional thermographers in order to produce reports of the highest quality.
With several high-resolution infrared cameras, each designed for a specific use, and a highly trained team of professionals including FAA Authorized commercial drone remote pilots, Certified Level III Thermographers, Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH), and other engineering/architectural specialists, BDG provides both walk-over infrared roof surveys and aerial roof inspections.
Benefits of Aerial Drone Roof Inspections
- Save time and expense
Commercial roof maintenance is best done proactively, and annual inspections are recommended. This will catch minor penetrations before they have a chance to escalate into costly repairs. Drone inspections can significantly reduce the time and expense of commercial roof inspections when compared to conventional methods.
In a typical due diligence/acquisition project, BDG finds defects that allow clients to negotiate repairs or retain credits prior to closing, saving them hundreds of thousands of dollars in repairs. Our service doesn’t cost – it pays.
- Minimize risk and danger
Conventional roof inspections can be dangerous. Drone inspections minimize the risks associated with great heights, deteriorated roofs and structures, complex designs, and hard to access areas, and allow for the collection of data in areas that would be difficult or impossible to reach on foot.
- Better data quality
BDG’s FLIR equipped aerial drones are capable of producing high-resolution images and video and capturing application-specific data in detail that was never before possible. Our cameras are capable of detecting temperatures of less than ½ degree F, which allows us to detect even the slightest anomaly.
- Before and after comparisons
One of the greatest uses of infrared thermography is developing a baseline file of a property. This is great for future insurance claims, annual repair budgets, and peace of mind. During our first visit to a new property, we document all elevations, equipment, and roof systems, and generate an electronic file of the report. Each year, we compare the new report to the previous year’s and use the information to identify defects before they become costly repairs.
The annual cost of an infrared roof inspection is significantly lower than the impact of substantial water intrusion.
