Encompass Inspections provides a variety of in house investigation services that blend cutting edge technology, experienced and certified technicians, and a flawless safety record, all in an effort to accomplish every job safely, quickly, and economically. Some our services include:
Ground Penetrating Radar and Concrete X-Ray
Ground Penetrating Radar is an extremely accurate, state of the art technology used to scan concrete in order to locate post tension cables, rebar, and conduits within a concrete slab. GPR is also used in void detection and is very safe and non-destructive, cutting out the downtime often required in traditional detection applications.
Utility Location (RD)
Locates conductive utilities with Radio Detection (RD) and marks existing utilities with corresponding Blue Stake paint colors. Metal, concrete, and plastic materials used in underground lines can be easily located, thereby preemptively eliminating many of the issues that arise when dealing with buried mains.
Allows internal inspections of piping, duct work, and cavities via camera snake and monitor. This time saving, investigative tool also allows for marking of potential or current issues and documents data that can be recorded for the customer.
Locates slab leaks, underground water leaks, and various other leaks by using acoustic and digital methods. Actually hearing where the leaks are allows us to quickly isolate the problems and efficiently fix them.
Utility Locating (GPR)
Uses Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to locate conductive and non-conductive utilities where the utilities’ origin/destination is unknown. The lower frequency used in this type of application allows us to locate targets faster and more effectively than traditional applications.
