The #1 Solution for Crumbling Foundations, Foundation Core Samples, Foundation Core Taps, Core Samples, and Core Taps!
OUR FOCUSCore Solutions is committed to be part of the solution not the problem for foundation concerns.
Here is a way to look at it to help decide. First ask yourself what am I looking for? If you are certain that you have mapping cracks and you are looking for core samples to be taken to verify the presence of pyhrrotite and submit the report to the state for reimbursement, then you may opt to have us take the core samples and send them to a lab that does Magnetic measurement since this is a bit cheaper. If you have some cracking or you are in a real estate transaction and are uncertain as to if your foundation is or going to be an issue for what is considered a “failed Foundation” then since the only labs currently doing compaction or stress tests with the evaluation are labs that use petrographic Examination that would be a reason to go with that method of testing. The reason you would want this stress test is to assist in determining what the condition of the concrete is which may relate to future consideration. Just because you have pyhrrotite in your foundation, it has not been proven that foundations will completely fail unless the following conditions also exist: Improperly mixed concrete (doesn’t hold up to stress test), Concrete did not bond properly, Excessive moisture absorbed by the concrete, Pyhrrotite does have oxidation and degradation.
