And, what is engineered wood flooring?  I Googled up “Engineered flooring” and got About 30,900,000 results (0.98 seconds)

Technically, engineered wood is any wood product that is not solid wood. Producers of wood panel products like to call plywood the first engineered product. Plywood consists of thin veneers of wood that are stacked so that the grain of one layer, or ply, runs perpendicular to the plies above and below it. An adhesive is applied between the plies and they’re bonded together on a hot press.


It is nearly impossible for a home inspector to know how many layers of laminate flooring are involved or how many times it can sanded (if any). Sometimes we might find a left over piece of flooring somewhere on site. If we are really lucky there might be a box of it sitting around. Then, you can do some research to find out general care instructions.





Below is most of our contract for our standard home inspections. It helps to keep us on our toes and do the best work possible for our clients. Does any one else guarantee their work like this? I think it’s just one more reason why we are booked most of the time and our competition is not.

Our Home Inspectors Guarantee Their Work

Home buyers put their faith in home inspectors to give them complete knowledge of the property they plan to purchase. If the inspector makes a mistake, the home buyer will be left with the repair cost. This is not acceptable for our clients. To ensure your confidence, we have increased our liability to $2,500.00. Most of our competition limits their liability to the fee paid for the inspection (this clause is in most contracts).  This will save you the attorney’s fees and increase your confidence that our inspectors will be your best protection from surprises.
