Meeting minimum standards for safety and quality is an essential benchmark for any building type. In the home, you want your flooring to be safe, reliable, and foolproof — and in a place of business, you want your flooring to be recognized as safe, and deemed such by professionals because your interactions with the public present the risk of legal action. Floor inspectors are valuable to you in either circumstance and it is to your benefit to take advantage of their services. Let’s explore what certified flooring inspectors can bring to the table (and the floor).
Four Reasons to Work With Certified Flooring Inspectors
Unparalleled, Specialized Experience
Certified flooring inspectors will tell you that the sheer number of inspections they’ve performed has led them to develop expertise tailored to industry standards. Eagle-eyed inspectors can spot installation defects, material defects, and workmanship issues that the layperson could easily miss. This understanding, in the end, saves you valuable time and money.
Inspectors Were Installers
To gain access to a school that trains people to become certified flooring inspectors, background knowledge and experience is required. In many cases, a certified floor inspector was at one point a floor installer. This means that you can trust that they know what they are doing, and know flooring from top to bottom (or from foundation to floorboards, if you like).
Protecting Your Investment
If you’ve put a lot of money into your property, it’s worth taking the extra step to ensure your commercial flooring contractors meet minimum safety requirements.
Industry Standard Compliance
No contractor or property developer wants to be associated with subpar construction. Flooring inspections prevent you from developing that reputation.
