 Ground Penetrating Radar Scanning

Before working on a concrete floor (i.e. warehouse floor, basement floor, etc.) it’s important to locate areas on the floor where it is clear to drill. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) scanning is a simple, fast and nondestructive way to see obstacles embedded in the concrete.

We use GPR scanning to locate in-floor heating, wiring, pipes, rebar, etc. embedded in the concrete. The floor is scanned using a 4’x4’ grid. Information is uploaded into a computer, and careful measurements are taken to mark spots where holes can be drilled.

During our repairs, work continues without disruption in the areas surrounding our repair.

What we can detect

Reinforcing steel and rebar
Pipes and plumbing
In-floor heating

What we can measure

Concrete thickness
Obstacle spacing

 Lead-Based Paint Testing

PB 200i laser gunFrom renovations to additions, we provide non-destructive, onsite analysis for the element lead in residential and commercial environments. Our MN Department of Health Licensed Lead Risk Assessors complete testing using state of the art XRay Fluorescence (XRF). We offer pre-renovation testing of components to be disturbed as a part of a planned renovation. We send the results report within 1 business day.

Why XRF Lead Testing

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) lead testing is faster, more accurate and generally less expensive than swab testing, with results emailed within one business day. Testing by a licensed 3rd party reduces liability and ensures testing follows proper EPA/HUD guidelines. XFR is more accurate than swab testing. Components containing lead concentration below the Action Level (1.0 mg/cm2) will show a Positive result with a swab test.

For Contractors

Starting a new project or just finishing up? Either way, we’ll come to your site and perform a lead test in your construction area.

Just send us your Renovation Project Plan and our lead risk assessor will contact you to schedule a testing. Don’t forget to include XRF on your client bid.

“Federal law requires contractors that disturb painted surfaces in homes, child care facilities and schools, built before 1978 to be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.”

For Homeowners

Though Minnesota law does not require lead testing for do-it-yourself projects, you should still take precautions to protect you and your family from lead. Give us a call to set up a lead testing.
