When you need a commercial roof survey or inspection in Dallas, Texas, Building Diagnostics Group can help. We offer several types of roof inspection services depending on the roof type, location, and client needs.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG), headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is a multifaceted consulting firm. Our proficiency in infrared building science and water testing procedures, as well as thermal infrared aerial imagery, are invaluable to architects, builders, property developers, construction managers, insurance companies and others.
Thermography provides a means for viewing building and roof systems under normal operating conditions to identify abnormally warm or cool areas that indicate moisture intrusion, insulation deficiencies and energy losses. Our state-of-the-art technology and skilled team of professional thermographers combine to produce inspections of the highest quality.
Extend the Life of Your Roof
It is estimated that up to 40 percent of all commercial roofs will develop leaks during the first year of service. The average life span of these roofs is seven to ten years, but they can last as long as 20 years if correctly installed and property maintained.
Far too often, the cause of a roof failure is the absence of proper maintenance and inspection. Periodic inspections and routine maintenance to correct deficiencies can significantly increase the long-term service life of any roof system and avoid expensive emergency costs that can arise without routine maintenance.
Conventional roof inspection methods require a time-consuming grid-type contact search (capacitance testing) that involves drilling holes (core sampling) in the roof membrane.
BDG’s non-contact, non-destructive infrared roof inspections can provide far more accurate observations of the condition of an existing roofing system. We can evaluate up to 300,000 SF of roof area in a single visit via our walkover method, or evaluate millions of square feet with our aerial drone service.
Choose a Thermographer Wisely
Infrared cameras produce images of raw data, and proper interpretation requires training and years of experience. High-resolution camera systems can detect even the slightest thermal patterns, but low resolution or low-cost cameras are less sensitive. Before you choose your thermographer, check their credentials and ensure they have the proper equipment and expertise to perform your inspection.
The President of BDG, Robert Scherer, has over 25 years of residential and commercial construction experience and is a pioneer in the field of moisture intrusion and building defect investigations with the use of infrared thermography. He is a Certified Indoor Environmentalist, Certified Mold Inspector, an ITC Certified Level III Thermographer with over 15 years of thermography experience and is certified in Advanced Building Diagnostics.
Utilizing only high-resolution FLIR SYSTEMS thermography equipment, the highest-quality infrared equipment in the industry, and several camera systems designed for different uses, the highly trained BDG team provides the most comprehensive non-destructive building inspections available today.
