Laboratory Analysis & Materials Testing
To determine what materials were used in the construction of the roofing/waterproofing assembly and to evaluate the conditions of these materials, our specialists can make selected openings to examine substrate conditions. We also collect samples of the materials to be further analyzed at a laboratory. This generally includes identifying the composition of the roof membranes and checking for asbestos-containing materials. When specialized sample analysis is required, we work with several materials testing laboratories with whom we have partnered.
