Construction timber inspection

Wooden structures

holzkonstruktionen.jpg Wood is a natural material, and is thus also subject to biological and physical degradation processes, unless it is properly protected. We offer you service and products for the inspection of wooden structures.

Historical wood

bauholzinspektionen_2.jpg The preservation of historical wood and cultural heritage structures requires information concerning the condition of the wood and other materials. We examine half-timbered houses and other historical buildings in preparation of restoration projects.

Engineered wooden structures

Utility poles and piles

bauholzinspektionen_4.jpg Millions of wooden poles support the power and telephone lines all over the world. Their preservation and maintenance requires regular inspections of their stability and safety.

Wooden bridges

bauholzinspektionen_5.jpg Wooden bridges are often cheaper to maintain than concrete structures. Nevertheless, wooden bridges also have to be regularly inspected because they are directly exposed to weather. When performed in time, preservation measures result in longer useful lives.
