Quality Assurance Programs

Because we remain completely independent of coatings manufacturers and contractors, you can be assured of the integrity of the report. Your final report will include a detailed written analysis of our findings along with a narrated underwater video tape of the inspection for your files. The report will also include specific recommendations to repair or maintain structure. Underwater inspection is the most highly efficient, cost-effective method of inspection that can eliminate major repairs to tanks or other submerged structures. The early signs of coating failure usually occur at welds, mechanically damaged areas, and where pinholes and holidays are present. Early detection and repair of defects will assure maximum life of the protective coating system.

There is no coating that is fail safe. However, it is possible to add years to the life of a coating system through proper on-site inspection during the coating process. Since we specialize in protective coatings, we are experts in why coatings fail and how to avoid their premature failure. Coatings failures result from many factors, such as not adhering to specifications, improper surface preparation, mixing errors, application processes, climactic conditions, etc. Our inspectors ridgedly adhere to governing specifications, to assure work is accomplished as prescribed. Oftentimes a surface is improperly prepared prior to coating thus leading to a failure within months, which leads to a costly repair, recoat and downtime.

We are true professionals dedicated to coatings inspection and corrosion prevention. Furthermore, we adhere to all local and federal health and safety regulations. Also we are fully insured so you can feel comfortable with any service we provide.
