Frequently Asked Questions

Concrete scanning is a non-destructive technique used to locate and map objects embedded within concrete structures. It helps identify items such as rebar, post-tension cables, electrical conduits, and other objects before drilling, cutting, or coring.

Concrete scanning is crucial to ensure the safety and integrity of concrete structures during construction or renovation projects. By detecting hidden objects within the concrete, it helps prevent accidental damage to utilities, structural elements, and potential hazards.

Concrete scanning involves the use of advanced technologies like ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and electromagnetic (EM) scanners. These devices emit signals that penetrate the concrete and bounce back when they encounter different materials or objects. The data is then analyzed to create a visual representation of the embedded objects.

Concrete scanning should be considered before any drilling, cutting, or coring activities in concrete structures. It is commonly performed in construction, renovation, or repair projects that involve installing anchors, creating openings, or modifying concrete elements.

Concrete scanning services provide benefits to various professionals, including builders, contractors, engineers, architects, electricians, plumbers, and anyone involved in construction or renovation projects that require working with concrete structures.

Concrete scanning can detect a wide range of objects, including rebar, post-tension cables, electrical conduits, pipes, voids, and other hidden hazards. However, certain objects, like plastic pipes or objects with low conductivity, may be more challenging to detect accurately.

Yes, concrete scanning is a safe and non-destructive method for both the concrete structure and the operator. It does not cause any damage to the concrete, and the operator can perform the scanning process from a safe distance.

Concrete scanning provides accurate results, but the level of accuracy depends on factors such as the equipment used, the operator’s expertise, and the concrete’s conditions. Experienced technicians can typically achieve high accuracy in identifying the location and depth of embedded objects.

The duration of a concrete scanning project varies based on the size and complexity of the structure, as well as the density of embedded objects. Small projects may be completed within a few hours, while larger or more intricate structures may require multiple days.

Once the concrete scanning is complete, you will receive a comprehensive report or visual representation of the embedded objects. It is essential to review this information carefully and share it with relevant stakeholders to make informed decisions during construction or renovation activities.
