Steven Johnston Inspections & Consulting is owned & operated by Steven Johnston.  I am a certified, independent floor inspection service & consultant & have no obligation to anyone but the commissioning party.  I CAN’T send reports or discuss inspection reports with any other party involved without signed written consent, NOR, discuss inspection findings. This is one of the most egregious ethics violations an independent inspector can do and is grounds to end their career. My only obligation is to find the truth & cause of the flooring issues (if possible). My income is solely from doing Independent Flooring Inspections & I value my reputation for complete independent & impartial inspections & reports. I apply the same conditions to a manufacturer when I am commissioned by another party to do an inspection. Thank you in advance for your understanding in this matter.
