Dallas based analyst determines the size of a void using GPR, saving a homeowner’s time and money
Recently, a private homeowner hired Penhall Technologies to scan his driveway to map out the extents of a void he’d discovered. The homeowner needed to have as much information as possible in order to decide how best to solve this issue. Our Dallas based analyst was able to use a GSSI Mini XT to quickly establish and mark the extents of the void, and identify the leaking pipe that was causing it. This kept the homeowner from having to remove more of the driveway slab than was absolutely necessary, thus saving time and money. The project goes to show that no job is too big, or too small for Penhall Technologies to complete. Penhall Technologies of the DFW area has the capability and the man power to meet your needs in a timely manner, ultimately ensuring your projects get finished safely and on time.
