Questions and Answers

What does Sutton do?

Sutton conducts on-site field insurance inspections for a variety of companies in order to help them make risk assessments for insurance purposes. Our inspectors serve as the eyes of the insurance underwriters who do not visit the sites in person. Sutton inspectors do a thorough examination of a location’s physical characteristics, exterior measurements, and general conditions. They also must take photographs and highlight any unusual hazards. These findings are summarized in a report and submitted to the insurance underwriter.
