In what circumstances is third-party inspection justified on commercial coating work?

Selected Answers

From Farrel Gorrell of Gorrell Coatings on June 14, 2017:
A company that does quality work will bring in an outside inspector. Documentation, documentation, documentation keeps people on both sides happy and honest.

From chris atkins of mott macdonald on June 12, 2017:
If you're the contractor and you think the client is going to be a pain about paying you, you might want an inspector.

From Michael Halliwell of Thurber Engineering Ltd. on June 9, 2017:
(With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy)When the cost to re-do it is much higher than the cost of inspection, you might want an inspector. If it's critical work or near impossible to get at later, you might want an inspector. If the client says that's the way they want it, you might want an inspector. If you're not sure about the guy with the lowest bid, you might want an inspector. :)
