TLS Laboratories travels nationally and internationally to assist builders. After the testing is completed, a professionally prepared report is generated that accurately describes the leaks discovered; opinions are given that describe what is

necessary to mitigate any problems discovered. Our inspectors will leave a detailed summary of the inspection results with

the field superintendent the day of the inspection. Our testing experts photodocument our testing and actually photograph leaks as they occur. This is useful if documenting who may be responsible for a leak. If arranged for in advance, video will be taken of the testing process; professionally created DVDs may be produced that demonstrate any leaks discovered.

Fees for our services vary upon where the project is located. Testing fees are usually based upon a daily rate plus travel expenses and fees. Please review the list of builders on our testimonials page that have benefitted from our services.
