We work with you to ensure that you enjoy the most cost-effective and practical solutions for your Orlando area construction project.
Our trained and experienced team uses state-of-the-art GPR scanning equipment to provide fast response time and accurate results. We serve the whole Central Florida area including Tampa, Lakeland, Orlando, Titusville, and Melbourne.
What Is Concrete Scanning?
Concrete scanning is used to locate wires, pipes, reinforcing rebar and metal inside concrete. These services are necessary before beginning concrete cutting and coring jobs to prevent cutting electrical wires, communication lines and pipes inside concrete walls, floors and other areas of your structure. Our scanning team can also find rebar and metal that could potentially cause damage during the cutting or coring process. This can boost your productivity and ensure the best outcome for your project.
We use the latest GPR scanning technology which utilizes radar pulses to detect subsurface objects. Our technique is non-disruptive and non-destructive on the existing buildings and the earth.
Limitations of Concrete Imaging
Even though imaging equipment has come a long way from where it began there are still some limitations.
- Materials, such as clay soils and soils that are salt contaminated, reduce the depth of scan.
- Rocky soils can cause scattered signals and limit performance.
- A skilled individual with expertise is necessary to interpret the data provided by the scan.

What are the Benefits of GPR Concrete Scanning?
You’ll need concrete scanning if you’re planning on coring, cutting, or drilling existing concrete during demolition, remodeling, or construction. GPR concrete scanning delivers significant benefits to your projects including:
Unintentionally striking an underground hazard when cutting through concrete may affect some utility services in the area or may result in the injury or death of a worker. You can avoid these accidents with concrete scanning.
Also, the GPR technology used in the concrete scanning is harmless to your structure. It doesn’t pose any health risk to your workers and the general public, so you can safely use it in a crowded public setting.
Maintains Structural Integrity of the Building
Hitting subsurface objects such as rebar or post-tension cables may impact the integrity of the whole building. Weakened rebar in the concrete may render your building unstable and unsafe for use. Preserve the structural integrity and durability of your concrete structure with concrete scanning.
We understand you have deadlines to beat, and we want your projects to go as smoothly as possible. With concrete scanning, you know where and how to cut, core, or drill through the concrete. As a result, you won’t hit utility lines embedded inside the structure, eliminating unnecessary emergencies that will derail your projects.
With a dedicated and skilled concrete scanning and imaging team like Cat & I, we give you the complete picture of your concrete structure. You can work more confidently, and your projects can go more smoothly and safely, saving you a lot of time for other important things.
When you blindly dive into a concrete cutting project, there’s a high risk you may run into a crucial subsurface object (such as utility lines and pipes), which may require more resources and costs for repairs.
Additionally, accidentally hitting solid objects like the rebar may damage your expensive equipment – causing
further delays and expenses.
