When you’re starting a construction project in Castlegar or beyond, you need to ensure your site and chosen construction materials are ready for the job at hand. At Glade Materials Testing, we offer a wide variety of testing services to suit your individual needs. Our team can perform tests on the following materials:
Our asphalt tests can provide you with vital information about the characteristics of asphalt mixtures and finished asphalt pavement. For this procedure, we examine the performance parameters of the material.
Whether you’re about to pour the concrete for a new foundation or walkway, or have already completed the job, let our team help you ensure it’s up to par. We offer several types of tests for concrete, including air content, compressive strength, slump and unit weight. Additionally, we can assist you with concrete coring, a process in which a section of concrete is cut or drilled through in order to test its strength.
Like asphalt and concrete testing, soil testing is also a key aspect of a major construction project. When we test your soil, we observe its chemical and geotechnical characteristics. This, in turn, helps to determine whether or not the soil can support your project, and provide a clearer picture of its compaction, contamination, density, and the presence of sand or organic content.
In addition to materials testing for building sites, we can assist with the design of a custom concrete mixture, pave certain surfaces, and crush rocks and other substances. For further information about our services, please give us a call today.
