The SHCC Philosophy

We believe that our clients have the following rights:

  • Honesty
  • Open communication
  • Fairness
  • Quality of workmanship

In other words, we feel that we owe it to our clients to deliver results of the highest caliber, even when the results are unpredictable, as is often the case.

There is a saying: "The customer is always right." When consultants and other types of experts take this position, objectivity is lost, as is integrity. We are not advocates. Our job is to improve the clients' situation by helping them to make better-informed decisions.

You may not always like what we have to say, but we promise to make every effort to ensure that our opinion is based on the facts available.

Similarly, our philosophy is simple when it comes to identifying, preventing and resolving the problems related to construction defects and deferred maintenance:

It is what it is.

A lot of consultants and inspectors try to complicate the answer to the question in order to justify their billing, get the client more money than what they are entitled to or for other reasons not worth exploring. A professional investigator should not be motivated to do anything but tell the truth.
