Walk-Over Roof Inspections
BDG’s visual photographic roof inspections use professional grade infrared camera equipment to capture high-resolution digital images. We can provide these images in a traditional PDF report format that outlines concerns found during the inspection and recommendations for proper repairs, or upload them to our cloud reporting platform which produces a large format stitched image or a 3D model that can easily be annotated, measured, and shared with other construction managers, building owners, or the appropriate repair personnel.
Aerial Infrared Roof Inspections
BDG’s aerial drone thermal infrared roof inspections are ideal for determining active roof leaks of commercial or multi-family properties and can significantly reduce the time and expense of commercial roof inspections when compared to conventional methods. This thermal imaging service is performed just after sunset to detect warm trapped moisture under the roofing membrane. It does not require roof access or disruption of the building occupants. The BDG team can evaluate millions of square feet with this aerial service.
