FloorSkills Inspection Services

FloorSkills offers a flooring inspection service to determine the reason for a failed floorcovering. This service is available to the end consumer, retailer, manufacturer or solicitor. FloorSkills independent reports are exactly that, ‘independent’. We have highly trained assessors who are all trade specific and FloorSkills knowledge and skilled checked ensuring FloorSkills will provide a comprehensive report concluding why a floorcovering has failed.

FloorSkills can offer in depth reports where we go beyond inspecting a flooring failure but to also include structural property concerns to subfloors along with causes such as subsidence, defective plumbing issues along with many other checks carried out to relevant British Standards. FloorSkills inspectors specialise in moisture ingress issues.

All our flooring inspectors are DBS checked and certified.

FloorSkills offers two types of report –

Basic reports

Our basic arbitration reports suit most cases. The quality of the inspection on our basic report is no different to the quality of the inspection carried out on our advanced report. The basic report documents the reason why the floorcovering has failed, which is all that is required in most circumstances. The report will be issued to whoever has instructed ourselves to undertake the report of faults found.

Advanced reports

Our advanced report is required when a case will be going to court. The report is known as a CPR35 . This report is written in a different format and our assessor may also be required to attend court with the client. This report is not required in most cases of a dispute.

Pricing –

FloorSkills inspections start from £350.00 + VAT, this includes a site visit and a full written report. Travel is charged @ £0.55 per mile.

We have inspectors based all around the UK, meaning the travel charge will be from the inspectors home address and not FloorSkills head office address.
