Specialty Testing

When assessing existing building conditions many times a visual survey just doesn’t provide all the information needed. Hidden conditions can often be the cause of failure. During new construction, verification of building component attachment or placement is also often needed. To meet the needs of property managers, building code officials, property owners, contractors, and developers, PSI’s facilities groups provide an array of minimally invasive specialty testing services. In general these types of services center around ASTM, AAMA, and other nationally recognized construction and manufacturing standards.

PSI can provide the following specialty testing services:

  • Water Intrusion Testing (ASTM-1105 and AAMA 501)
  • Infrared Thermography (Roof and Exterior Envelope)
  • Nuclear Surveys
  • Wind Uplift Testing
  • Bonded Pull Tests (Roof and Wall)
  • Moisture Transmission Tests
  • Reinforcement Verification-Ferroscan
  • Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
