Career History
Winning cases requires witnesses with believability and knowledge. Rob McNealy has both because he is an actively practicing, full time walkway auditor and floor inspector; not just some retired rubber stamp with a PE after his name.

Flooristics provides an array of expert consulting and forensic services including: walkway auditing, slips, trips, and falls, slip testing, coefficient of friction (COF) testing, moisture testing of concrete slabs and other materials, forensic analyses and testing of flooring installations and materials, and record review of industry best practices and standards for both plaintiffs and defense. Flooristics is experienced in the testing of concrete, ceramic tile, carpet, resilient, bamboo, hardwood, laminate and engineered flooring materials.
