Three Different Types of Flooring Inspections Available.
- Written inspection—An inspection is conducted and results are given to the commissioning party in a written report. A written inspection is needed if the commissioning party needs support for a court case or mediation.
- Verbal inspection—An inspection is conducted and the results are given to the client verbally. A verbal inspection can be performed when the commissioning party only requires party responsibility for the problem.
- Inspection rebuttal—A client/commissioning party may have had one or more prior inspections that do not appear fact based or accurate. A third party inspection rebuttal can point out inaccurate information in prior reports and/or can introduce new facts and conclusions.
