About our Inspector...

A good floor inspector is the “eyes and ears” of the industry. An unbiased, objective, honest, third party whose job it is to look at floor covering problems big and small, and determine the true basis for the claim against the liable party.

 

HISTORY-CAREER

I have worked fifty plus years in floor covering. Approximately 40 years installing floor coverings and 10 years in sales. Employed as cabinet maker from 1964 to 1973. During these same years I also worked installing all types of hardwood flooring. From 1974 to 1989 owned and operated floor covering retail stores. I returned to installing wood flooring from 1990 to 1997. In 1998 I began my certified inspection career. While working as an inspector in the years 1997 to 2001 I worked for Pergo as a trainer for their laminate Certified Installer program, and currently still work for them on a third party basis when needed.

 

EDUCATION

I attended and graduated North Bergen High School and attended two years community college. As a cabinetmaker I attended four years of cabinetmaker apprenticeship with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America.
