Quality with a reinstatement design from WELS

  1. Survey and documentation of damages
  2. Testing at the surface:
    • Quantitative Assessment of harmful substances (Chlorides, Nitrates, Sulfates)
    • Assessment of moisture and hygroscopicity moisture absorption at drilled cores:
    • Assessment of the type of natural stone and re-points
    • Assessment of capillary water absorption
    • Assessment of sorption moisture
    • Assessment of pore volume
    • Testing of swellable clay and assessment of the hygric moisture expansion and shrinkage
    • Assessment of conservation by using standard preserving agents
  3. Recommending a reinstatement concept of rehabilitation and conservation measures due to preservation orders.
