Masonry Solutions International has supplied owners and design professionals with hundreds of in-depth reports and analyses, giving insight and guidance on the steps needed to rectify of variety of issues. We understand masonry, the way it performs, and the methods by which its conditions should be evaluated. To this end, we have championed a number of non-destructive evaluation tools, which we utilize in the pursuit of better investigation and planning. NDE represents the most sympathetic way to extract information with our damaging historic or fragile fabric.
Our NDE technologies include:
- Microwave radar (AKA Ground Penetrating Radar or GPR)
