Corrosion poses a growing threat as bridge infrastructure continues to age and spending on maintenance and repair is put off. Corrosion is a leading factor in the degradation of bridges. The Coating Inspector possesses expertise in corrosion inspection, prevention, and protective coatings.

Both public and private water and wastewater agencies throughout North America have infrastructure assets ranging in value, from millions to billions of dollars. The Coating Inspector utilizes proven principles of corrosion prevention and mitigation for dams, aqueducts, tunnels, water and wastewater treatment plants, pumping plants, distribution pipelines and storage reservoirs.

Park rides and attractions see a combination of stresses and elements unlike other comparable structures of their size and shape. The Coating Inspector works with government regulators and amusement parks to successfully control corrosion on rides and make corrosion inspection a critical and fundamental part of a park’s maintenance operation.

Aircraft, ships and other vital assets used by the military must be kept in peak shape and readiness to fulfill their important defense roles. That means corrosion prevention is a must. The Coating Inspector offers industry knowledge gleaned from years of experience working in differing environments in regions.

Storage tanks, pipelines and other underground systems are all susceptible to corrosion. They carry or hold such materials as crude oil, processed liquids, and wet and dry gas. The Coating Inspector can perform regular pipeline inspection for condition, effectiveness and potential for failures.

The ability of coatings to resist corrosion over extended periods is an important contributor in safeguarding your capital investment. Corrosion related maintenance can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your ship. The Coating Inspector can help you to reduce costs, maximize asset availability, keep personnel safe, and preserve the environment.

Combating corrosion in the oil and gas industry is paramount since the economic loss in these industries due to corrosion is extremely high. The Coating Inspector has years of experience combating corrosion issues at oil and gas pipelines, refineries and petrochemical plants.

ISO 45001 certified organisations have identified and operate to regulatory requirements through enforcing procedures for compliance with legislation.

We are commited to impeccable client service & employee safety.


The AMPP (Formerly know as The National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE)) is a globally recognized certification body to certify and train corrosion engineers.

With over 36,000 members globally, it is the most recognized trade association of corrosion inspectors to ensure industry standards in the coating inspection industry.

Established in 1943, it serves to train corrosion inspectors, enforce industry standards, certify engineers, publish and research corrosion inspection techniques and journals, as well as provide a standardized approach to corrosion inspection and prevention.

NACE “equips society to protect people, assets and the environment from the adverse effects of corrosion.”

Every project, business and industrial assets are unique. Depending on the scope of work, location and amount of inspectors or work hours required for your project, the cost can vary. 

However, The Coating Inspector is committed to saving your business time, money and assets. The cost of equipment breakdown, shutdown or repair delays can cost your business far more resources than preventative maintenance, work and inspection.

Call, email or contact us via the form below with a bit more of information about your business. From there we’ll consult with you regarding your unique corrosion prevention requirements. 

From there we’ll provide you a comprehensive quote and scope of work, and then begin working together with you to keep your facility and equipment in top working area.
