Why Add GPR To Your Concrete Inspection

Why It's a Great Idea to Incorporate GPR Into Your Concrete Inspection

There are many reasons GPR is the technology of choice for scanning concrete.

Now more than ever before, property owners and people who manage real estate strive to renovate their properties so they can be as alluring as possible to buyers, which allows for the largest return they can make on their initial investment. Since buildings have gotten more complex over the years, there are more conduits that get integrated into concrete slabs and structures. It has reached the point that structural engineers worry about where concrete needs to go. With this in mind, people turn to non-destructive technologies to scout properties and ensure that conduits can be installed on them safely. One such technology is ground penetrating radar (GPR). There are many reasons GPR is the technology of choice for scanning concrete.

GPR Gives You Accurate Imaging

GPR not only gives you the accurate images you want; it can also analyze slices at a variety of depths and give you the orientation and depth of the embedded items.

GPR is Highly Efficient

While more areas are starting to require GPR scanning, it’s still difficult to find the money to pay for the service. This means that the fewer visits you need from a concrete scanning company, the better. GPR is well known for getting the job done thoroughly in one take. It’s not only highly effective, but it can also get the job done quickly.

Workplace Integration

Workers who provide GPR scanning services should be able to fit it into people’s workplaces seamlessly. GPR is a non-destructive technology, and it only requires only one technician to operate. It can also be done during regular business hours without disrupting workflow. You can even reduce the time and money you spend on large projects because you get real-time assessments. When you get results in real time, the time between your scanning and cutting goes down, and you often don’t have to have a second site visit.

GPR is Non-Invasive

If you can get an assessment and testing done without having to destroy your property, why would you ever choose any other method? Since GPR is non-destructive, you won’t waste time and money tearing apart your property in areas that don’t need to be excavated. Instead, you can find the exact places where drilling and coring is needed. This lets you be as time and cost-effective as possible when you start digging around the site.
