Inspection Services

Choates General Contracting utilizes the latest diagnostic equipment and techniques to identify problem areas inside and outside your home or commercial building.  Immediate identification and remediation of these problem can help save you thousands in long-term repairs.

Our inspections can proactively determine areas of concern, that when addressed promptly can alleviate more serious issues, such as:

  • Structural Integrity Undermining
  • Moisture Intrusion
  • Foundation Deterioration

In addition, our technicians utilize our state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to identify areas of causation for moisture intrusion.  If you suspect or know that you have a moisture problem, we can identify where the moisture is entering your home or building with minimal intrusion.  We provide:

  • Moisture Mapping
  • Infrared Moisture Inspection
  • Moisture Meters
  • Microbial Monitoring
  • Photo-ionization Monitoring

Our environmental Consultants can detect damage causing moisture on gypsum wallboard and wood framing within your home or commercial building.  During the thorough Phase A inspection, we inspect all accessible surfaces for moisture content. We will locate the source of any moisture or water intrusion.  We will also identify any microbial issues caused by excessive moisture.

Your Choates Environmental Consultant will then sit down with you and discuss the results of the Phase A inspection.  If any microbial sampling is necessary, we will explain the various sampling methods, such as Air-O-Cell, Tape Left of Squibb Test. In the case of legal or medical suits, cultural sampling, or Phase B testing may be required.

If Phase B, or microbial sampling is necessary, it will be tailored to your specific needs.  Addition to microbial air sampling, we offer general air quality testing for VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). This type of inspection is conducted with calibrated photo-ionization equipment.

For all of our inspections, we will provide you detailed documentation of our findings.

Once the causation of your issue is identified, Choates' professional craftsman can remediate the problem.  Our services include:

  • Stucco/EIFS Repair
  • Foundation Repair
  • Waterproofing
