We have preformed over 350 condition assessments and forensic building analysis over the last decade. We have successfully corrected failures in attachments, material surfaces, and exterior finish systems. Our database of the performance characteristics and petrographic composition of archaic materials provides defined modeling characteristics for energy modeling.
PMA provides repair drawings, repair specifications, and project cost assistance in association with our findings and recommendations.
