A Property Condition Assessment or Commercial Building Inspection in Durham, North Carolina can help investors, sellers, lenders, and other stakeholders fully assess any risks associated with the property.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) specializes in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions on multi-family, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings throughout the nation. Our state-of-the-art technology and skilled team of professional thermographers combine to produce inspections of the highest quality.
Infrared inspections by BDG have saved clients thousands of dollars by discovering deficient areas within their buildings, such as moisture within walls, insulation, and other building materials that indicate leaking pipes, condensation issues, and other problems.
What to Expect from a Property Condition Assessment
A Property Condition Assessment (PCA) is an inspection of an asset that identifies any physical defects and deferred maintenance issues that could potentially affect its value.
The inspector visits the site and spends several hours or days doing a walk-through of the property and inspecting the building envelope, structural systems, HVAC systems, electrical systems, plumbing and more.
For each deficiency found, clients receive a report that fully describes the concerns or defects found during the inspection along with photo documentation. Inspection reports can be customized to meet a client’s requirements based on how the report will be used and its intended audience.
Wide Range of Infrared Inspection Capabilities
Knowing as much as possible about a building envelope provides the critical information prospective buyers and investors need to identify costly hidden damage or validate a sound investment, making infrared inspections extremely cost-effective in the decision-making process.
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 investigations available today.
Those investigations include:
Exterior Building Inspections – Infrared imaging allows us to 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. We can map areas of moisture entrapment and delimitation due to environmental stress for many different cladding systems.
Commercial Roof Inspections – Infrared roof inspections are a non-contact and non-destructive testing method of finding active roof leaks before they become a massive problem. BDG’s inspections are fast, affordable, and can see the unseen and pin point anomalies beneath the roofing substrate. Our team can evaluate up to 300,000 SF of roof area in a single visit via our walk-over method, or millions of square feet with our aerial drone service.
Interior Building Inspections – Infrared thermography is by far the best method for the documentation of a water loss or water intrusion event. With our extensive knowledge and use of high resolution infrared cameras, we can quickly pinpoint the exact location of water intrusions with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and with minimal disturbance to the occupants.
