Hardwood Inspections

The hardwood floor that was installed in your home or business can add value and enhance the esthetics of any room. If properly cared for with appropriate maintenance your hardwood floors can last far beyond its intended years. But if something occurs during installation or maintenance, its always wise to seek the aid of a certified flooring inspector. During our inspections we check for cupping, crowning, gaps, splits-checks, finish problems, moisture, flatness of the floor and gloss level of the finish. If you have one or more of these conditions,  Horizon Flooring Inspections can perform a specialized certified inspection service, and give you a comprehensive report on our findings as well as offer recommendations and solutions to issues found.

Laminate Inspections

Laminate flooring is a multi-layer, synthetic flooring product installed as a cost-effective alternative to traditional wood floors. Beneath the layer is an inter core composed of melamine resin and fiberboard materials. Common defective conditions to laminate floors are: Gapping, peaking, buckling/warping, mold, off-registration, soft floor, formaldehyde-outgassing and sound penetration, there can be many more depending on the conditions. Laminate floors are inexpensive and strong, but they’re not immune to a variety of defects. Horizon Flooring Inspections can perform a specialized certified inspection service, and give you a comprehensive report on our findings as well as offer recommendations and solutions to issues found. 

   

Ceramic Tile Inspections

To be able to inspect ceramic tile installations there are a number of things the inspector must know. For instance, how tile is manufactured and classified which better gives the inspector an understanding of the materials and what the tolerances are for specific types of tile. During the inspection we look for lippage, check the tile installation for cracks, loose tiles, lifting, chipping and splitting. We test for crazing of the glaze in the tile, check cracked grout lines check the floor for excessive moisture and check how flat the floor is. If you have one or more of these conditions,  Horizon Flooring Inspections can perform a specialized certified inspection service, and give you a comprehensive report on our findings as well as offer recommendations and solutions to issues found. 

Carpet Inspections

While every floor covering product can be shown to have its own advantages and drawbacks, carpet has several distinct benefits when compared to hard surfaces. Carpet provides excellent insulation value to a space, much more than hard surface flooring materials. Sound carries much further when there is no carpet in the space. This is because hard surfaces can’t absorb sound the way that soft surfaces – such as carpet – can. It goes without saying that hard surfaces can be slippery, and they’re not much fun to land on when slips and falls do happen. But when carpet pulls up, looses it’s color and is crushed and matted then it’s best to get a certified carpet inspection. The precision of our carpet inspections depends on the situation such as condition, size, and material of the carpet including the padding. Horizon Flooring Inspections can perform a specialized certified inspection service, and give you a comprehensive report on our findings as well as offer recommendations and solutions to issues found. 

Sheet Vinyl Inspections

Sheet Vinyl is a popular finishing option for interior floors. Advantages of this material include the variety of colors and styles available along with its moderate durability and relative ease of maintenance. Proper installation of sheet vinyl flooring actually requires a high level of skill, in addition to specific training. Some of the most common complaints related to sheet vinyl flooring can be traced back to issues with wrong patching, seam failure or open seams, the wrong adhesive, improper or lack of subfloor preparation, cracking and irregular surface. We check for maintenance, dulling of the gloss, surface-stripping, discoloration and surface damage and dents. Horizon Flooring Inspections can perform a specialized certified inspection service, and give you a comprehensive report on our findings as well as offer recommendations and solutions to issues found. 

LVP/LVT Inspections

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) and Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) provide a visually pleasing floor with very simple care and maintenance requirements but are susceptible to defects, site conditions and installation issues. Our inspection procedures and field testing can lead to the determination of the cause of the failures. Horizon Flooring Inspections can determine the moisture content readings of whatever your substrate your LVT/LVP floor is installed over. We also do meter readings, home’s relative humidity and adequate expansion space. Horizon Flooring Inspections can perform a specialized certified inspection service, and give you a comprehensive report on our findings as well as offer recommendations and solutions to issues found.
