Thermal Imaging for Roof Leaks
Thermal Imaging for Roof Leaks

About 40 percent of all commercial roofs will develop leaks within the first year of service. Thermal imaging roof inspection services 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.

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

The average life span of a commercial roof is seven to ten years, but it 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.

Comprehensive Inspection Services

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.

In addition to infrared roof inspection, our wide range of services include:
