Inspection Reports

Coatings and linings provide structures not only with an outward visual appearance and protection but also with protection from corrosion, ultraviolet light, water penetration, heat, abrasion, and chemicals. Our inspectors at Bay Area Coating Consultants Inc. can provide a coating and lining inspection report that gives you a comprehensible look at the hourly preparation and quality of application coatings linings being applied. With new and improved materials being developed and introduced at an accelerated pace due to more stringed volatile organic chemicals and compounds , the need to efficiently and economically apply protective coatings is equally intensive and critical. Selection of the proper coating or lining materials has become increasingly essential as the rehabilitation of new and old structures surfaces becomes more costly. Ed Darrimon President at BACC has developed an unprecedented method of coating selection and surface testing and preparation. The information provided by a coating inspection report can contribute to the reduction of these costs and failures. Bay Area Coating Consultants Inc. has merged our skills in coating and lining selection and analysis with 37 years of practical field tested experience in product validation to produce a very extensive coating inspection report second to none.
