The first concrete scanning Sydney was carried out in 1998 when concrete drilling machines were first introduced. Since then the industry has continued to grow and contractors all around the country have found that this type of concrete analysis and imaging is very cost efficient as well as being accurate. In addition to this, it offers a level of customization not available with other types of concrete analysis equipment. Many of the current equipment manufacturers in the concrete drilling industry also offer a full range of analytical services including surface grinding, breaking or lifting, drilling and casting. With an accuracy of over 95%, concrete scans can provide valuable information not only about construction materials but also provide insight into flaws, compaction, surface irregularities and age.}
If you are interested in getting a concrete scan done, there are a number of places to look. There are many reputable companies offering this service all across Sydney and the surrounding regions. A quick search online should reveal all of the providers in your area as well as information about the prices they charge and what is included. Most reputable concrete drilling companies will offer free site preparation and transportation or other options to their customers. You may also be able to get a better price if you arrange for a test to be carried out prior to your first concrete scan.

Once you have decided to have your concrete scanned, you will need to decide where you want the scan done. Although many Sydney contractors offer this service, some may not have the equipment available in your area. It might be necessary for you to travel to a major city for a concrete scan if your area does not currently have this type of equipment. If this is the case, you will need to find a company that does have a scanner in your area and book one of their weekends to come and take the equipment to your site. Once the scanning is complete, you should be given all of the information you requested. This includes the thickness of the concrete, the details of the scan and the concrete drill specifications.
