Floor Inspections


Residential and commercial inspections are required when there are misunderstandings or complaints about product performance. These inspections may be requested by anyone who is in the “value chain” from the manufacturer, retailer, consumer or insurer.  Questions about performance generally fall into one of the several categories:

  • Manufacturing related
  • Specifications related
  • Installation related
  • Maintenance related
  • Simple misperceptions about product characteristics

We are experienced in the inspections and failure analysis of woven carpet and rugs, carpet tile, broadloom carpet, resilient tile, rubber tile, cork tile, ceramic tile, resilient sheet vinyl, vinyl composition tile, hardwood, laminate, solid vinyl and specialty flooring materials.

Certified inspectors are able to perform unbiased inspections because we do not sell, manufacture or install; however we do have extensive backgrounds in dealing with flooring products before, during and after installation. Our work experience, combined with attendance at highly specialized training courses – including extensive written examinations – qualifies us to provide expert analysis and opinions on many flooring related issues.

We are certified by the IICRC, (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration), FCITS (Flooring Consultants and Inspection Training Services) and members of the NWFA (National Wood Flooring Association) and the NICFI (National Institute of Certified Flooring Inspectors).
