Durability Starts with Material Integrity
Which material is the structure made of?
Exposed metals can deteriorate faster overtime if not protected. Learn what preventative measure should be taken.
Depending on the concrete mix, materials can deteriorate faster if not used in the appropriate environment.
Masonry materials such as marble, limestone and terra-cotta all perform differently depending on environmental factors.
Materials perform differently in different environments
Which environmental factors are impacting the material's durability?
Durable Materials Make Durable Structures
Save time and money. We provide you the scientific data needed to make informed decisions regarding material durability.
We help our clients by creating timelines to the performance of construction materials and its impact to the overall structure. Through our Life52® holistic approach, we help identify degradation rates to project future material failures. This saves our clients money, time, and potential liabilities.
Soil properties, water, temperature and humidity can all cause chemical reactions of critical components and weaken materials. We help to investigate material vulnerabilities to ensure critical components are protected from exterior elements.
Exposed metals are susceptible to deterioration. Learn how we can slow down this process. We can help reduce maintenance costs, lower safety issues and increase the overall service life of the structure
Concrete performs differently in coastal areas versus inland locations. We can help identify the right concrete repairs appropriate for existing conditions to provide long-term durability.
Understanding root causes of masonry deterioration is imperative in determining long-term repairs necessary to prevent undesired chemical reactions from taking place.
