Before beginning any sort of construction project that requires cutting into existing concrete, you need to figure out what lies behind that concrete. Getting concrete X-ray Riverside County from Subsurface Imaging is an excellent way to accomplish this goal. With our help, you can see exactly what is contained within concrete walls, beams, raised floors, and ceilings and avoid cutting into it accidentally.
How It Works
Our concrete x-ray service literally takes a picture of whatever is inside the concrete. We accomplish this by placing a sheet of film behind the concrete being scanned, and then passing a safe radiation source over the front side of the concrete. Because different materials absorb X-rays differently, any objects within the concrete will be represented on the film. Judging by the quality of the image, we can even tell what these objects are made of. We’ll mark the location of any objects we find on the concrete itself.
Benefits of Concrete X-Ray Riverside County
The chief benefits of concrete X-ray Riverside County are:
- Locating obstructions inside concrete without cutting
- Differentiating between metal and plastic
- Improving work site safety
- Reducing costs by preventing accidental cutting of rebar, cables, or conduit
The main drawback of concrete x-ray is that it requires access to both sides of the concrete.
