Inspector Integrity a Major Decision
Inspector integrity should be on of your major decisions in selecting a carpet inspector. When an individual or consumer commissions a carpet inspector they are usually looking to hire a neutral party. In doing so, inspector integrity needs to be considered. Inspectors such as Kevin Weinheimer or Terry Weinheimer are known to have inspector integrity that base decisions on the facts and not upon who is paying for the carpet inspection
Most Qualified, Certified wall to wall carpet inspector’s do have inspector integrity. When searching for an inspector with integrity, one place to start would be the National Institute of Floorcovering Inspectors. While organizations such as NICFI do not have control over their members they do tend to weed out the bad apples when they are found.
Importance of Carpet Inspector Integrity
Inspector integrity is important for if the inspector does not have the personal strength to rule against the person that is paying their fee – or are of the opinion that they must go after the person with the deepest pockets – they will quickly lose the trust of consumers and those within the carpet industry.
A qualified carpet inspector with inspector integrity will treat every inspection as if it may wind up in court. Have you ever noticed that it is easier to remember the truth than a lie? An honest inspector that backs up the claim with facts will better be able to support the inspection report for he has told the truth and not filled it with misleading information to please the commissioning party.
At times a Certified Carpet Inspector will find it necessary to provide in court witness against a regular manufacturer or dealer client. An inspector will occasionally receive phone calls from dealers, installers, consumers and others that they have gone against and they have become very angry with the decision that was made. If the inspector reported honest facts that they can support, they will find that later on many of these same people will be calling the inspector to handle a different claim for them.
An honest inspector will recognize that while a carpet manufacturer, fiber producer, insurance company, contractor, consumer or floor covering dealer may be paying for their services it is the inspectors responsibility to remain neutral. As inspectors we may recognize the feelings of others but must not take sides because we feel sorry for them or because another has the deepest pockets.
Unfortunately in the inspection business just like any other business there are a few bad apples that will take the side of the party that is paying for the service. If an inspector that will shade the truth is the person you are looking for do not use the service of the Weinheimer Group.
