Tucks Inspection Service is not controlled by any organizations or associations supported and controlled by manufacturers, distributors or retailers.
This is a free independent inspection service that will provide you with the truth, and will not be controlled by special interest. 

The Process for Homeowners and Retailers
Each year, homeowners save their money to buy new flooring to improve the value and appearance of their homes. However, sometimes the desired results are not satisfactory. You file a complaint with the retailer who files a complaint with the manufacturer. The manufacturer will send an email to a person. This will be a "Mill only Inspector" most times who does several inspections a day on a route. The mill inspectors' jobs are simple, "Determine if the claim is manufacturing related or not". The mill inspector is there to represent the manufacturer in your claim. He is not there to tell you who or what caused your problem. His job is to represent the manufacturer as either a manufacturing concern or not. He is not there to help you solve your problems! You, the homeowner and retailer, are only told it is not their concern. 
Retailers and Homeowners, you need someone to represent your interest. 
Selva Lee Tucker is also trained by North Carolina State University's Wood Extension Department to better help you with all of  your flooring questions. Learn the truth from someone trained by the wood scientist!

Building Contractors and Construction Specifier
You hire what was supposed to be reputable company to install the flooring in your new or remodeled commercial or residential building. 
However, within days to months, you are receiving telephone calls complaining about the flooring. They may be polite or upset but each of those persons represents future work and the GOOD NAME of your Company or YOURSELF by referrals or expressing their opinions of your workmanship and service. Can you afford to jeopardize you life work from the failures of the product or installation of the flooring. 
The cost of replacing flooring of occupied buildings is huge! 
Do not trust your GOOD NAME and the GOOD NAME of your COMPANY to a person sent by the flooring manufacturer who is there to represent the manufacturer, NOT YOU! 
Manufacturers know the huge cost of replacing flooring, which is why, they train and use MILL Inspectors. 

The manufacture of this pine flooring stated it was completely "Site Conditions" and not their responsibility.
