We provide Florida engineering and drone inspections plus asbestos surveys. Waterproofing, stucco repairs, concrete repairs and roofing are our specialties.

Do you need an asbestos survey for renovations? How about a building inspection to help solve water leaks or construction defects? Maybe you have an upcoming construction project and you just want to make sure the contractor is building what you paid for. Recon Response can help with all of that. 

We make sure that Florida’s homes, businesses, and commercial buildings are built to last. Asbestos testing before the renovations or repair work begins is half the battle. Finding and fixing construction defects is also a big part of our job. We fly our own licensed and insured drone fleet for visual and thermal/infrared inspections. Using our fleet of specialty DJI drones we can take a “snapshot” of the building’s health before or after a hurricane passes through.  

Our founder, Andrew Schrader, has guest-lectured at the University of South Florida College of Engineering, the Florida Fire Chief’s Association, and the New York State Department of Homeland Security. He helped the U.S. Department of State’s Italian Consulate develop their earthquake disaster plans. Also, the American Society of Civil Engineer’s (ASCE) Journal of Composites for Construction, the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI), and the Sealant, Waterproofing, and Restoration Institute (SWRI) have all published his writing or research.

Andrew Schrader serves the State of Florida by working on its Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) Task Force. He deployed for search-and-rescue missions following Hurricane Hermine (2016), Hurricane Irma (2017), Hurricane Michael (2018), and Hurricane Dorian (2019). Andrew currently volunteers as the Structures Specialist Working Group Chair for the State of Florida.

We are proud to service the entire state of Florida,
That is where our knowledge-base of local structures is greatest.

Our office is based in the Tampa Bay area including Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Manatee County. This means St. Petersburg, Pinellas Park, Clearwater, Dunedin, and all of Tampa. However, we also travel all over the state of Florida on a regular basis.

If you need a Pinellas County asbestos survey to meet the strict requirements of that area, or need a test elsewhere, then please let us know. Many people don’t realize that the asbestos testing regulations are actually a federal mandate–although it is enforced differently in each county. Condominiums and multi-family homes ALWAYS need an asbestos test to be performed before any renovations! Find out more information here.
