LADBS Methane Testing Agency Roster List
The “LADBS Methane Testing Agency Roster List” is part of an alphabetized list of official certified companies in Los Angeles. The certification program is organized by the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety (or LADBS organization). Additionally, the list includes each company’s contact information. Moreover, the roster includes each certification number, license type, and expiration date. Lastly, the roster also includes various types of licenses, other than the LADBS methane testing agency roster list. For instance, welding performance tests, soil lab testing, concrete testing, and more.
The LADBS Roster is in Alphabetical Order
Viewers should know the LADBS Roster lists companies in alphabetical order. As a result, companies beginning with the letter “A” are on the first page. However, this is NOT an order of preference. For example, Geo Forward, Inc. is one of the leading providers of methane soil testing in the City of Los Angeles. Consequently, Geo Forward, Inc. is displayed on page 12 of the LADBS Methane Testing Agency Roster list due to the alphabetical ordering.
What to Look For
Due to the alphabetical order, it is best to avoid only calling the companies on the first page. Some of the best companies (and best prices) don’t actually start with the letter “A.” So be diverse in our bid requests. You can use “Control + F” to search the term “Methane Field Testing” to find each of the companies offering this service. And it shouldn’t take more than a minute to go through them all.
Moreover, make sure the company you’re hiring is qualified and has integrity. For instance, one of the many requirements is to hold an active and clear license with the Board for Professional Engineers, Geologists and Land Surveyors. Google search the company too. Make sure the company and it’s members don’t have a criminal history of fraud or misrepresentation.
Equally important, watch out for the suspiciously low prices! A proper methane test isn’t cheap. Companies with less integrity may offer a price much lower than the average. But what you’re not told is about the short-cutting of test in order to reduce their costs, and increase their profits. Typically, these cuts make the report below LADBS Standards. And suspiciously low-costing reports have the highest risk of rejection by the LADBS.
Lastly, some companies have expired licenses, yet they might still try to bid on a job. This is definitely an issue to keep an eye out for. A report from an expired-agency might end up being useless after everything’s been paid for. The LADBS Methane Testing Agency Roster lists each licence number and expiration date for your reference.
