Certified Chinese Drywall Testing, LLC now offering discount analysis services.
Certified Chinese Drywall Testing, LLC currently offers the nation’s only insurable testing and clearance protocol for Chinese drywall. The testing protocol, however, is extensive. As a result, it is also expensive.
In an effort to offer services to a wider range or clients, Certified Chinese Drywall Testing, LLC has begun offering analysis services on drywall samples collected outside of the company’s proprietary testing protocol. These services are offered at a substantial discount when compared to many other lab facilities, but the samples are analyzed using the exact equipment utilized by the CPSC in their investigation into Chinese drywall.
Each sample is analyzed using XRF and FTIR analysis. The CPSC has identified the use of these two technologies in tandem to be a reliable method for identifying defective drywall. XRF utilizes X-ray technology to analyze each sample for strontium and FTIR utilizes infrared light to measure calcium carbonate. These to independent markers are indicative of Chinese drywall.
This analysis is similar to the options offered by AssuredBio and other lab facilities. Because they test only drywall, whereas many labs use the equipment for the testing of many different materials, Certified Chinese Drywall Testing, LLC is able to offer the testing at a drastically reduced rate. In addition, the analysis of drywall samples does not necessitate a lab facility. Because Certified Chinese Drywall Testing, LLC does not utilize the equipment for any measurements that would require a laboratory, the overhead costs associated with maintaining such a facility are eliminated.
As a result, Certified Chinese Drywall Testing, LLC is able to offer analysis of a sample of drywall on both FTIR and XRF for less than ½ the cost of their competitors.
The analysis fees are*:
1-5 samples: $100 each compare to $329 each
6-10 samples: $90 each compare to $279 each
11-16 samples: $80 each compare to $279 each
16+ samples: $70 each compare to $279 each
Typical turnaround time for analysis results is 7-10 days and rush processing is available.
