Laboratory Testing

Testing your repair products will save your project from big expenses down the road

Our testing experts can help you with troubleshooting, formulations, failure analysis and DOT specifications and submittals

Refurbishments account for almost half of all construction work which makes repairs, restorations and protective services an essential part of our business. Structural projects can vary from buildings, parking decks, balconies, bridge piers, roofing and more. These projects use all sorts of products and choosing the correct product for your repair is crucial. Without understanding what caused the initial breakdown and possible compatibility issues you may risk costly mistakes.

Our laboratory performs a wide range of the testing on repair products for DOT Submittals/Specifications and ANSI testing for tile mortar products.
