Wood Pole Inspections
Used extensively for electric distribution, telephone, cable, and sports lighting, there are hundreds of thousands of wood poles dotting the landscape in the United States today. Many wood poles are installed for decades without follow-up inspection. Once the protective preservative is compromised, decay moves quickly. Insect attack and avian damage can shorten the lifespan of wood poles; mechanical and vehicular damage also take their toll on these structures.
RES employs resistograph testing to verify the cross-sectional adequacy of your structure and to confirm rot. Our fleet of UAS' have also proven beneficial for aerial inspection of the structure. Call RES to inquire about our wood pole inspection capabilities today.
