Regionally different words mean different things and to say one thing on a New York Rescheck might mean something different on a Texas Rescheck.

We use these words and terms on a daily basis when speaking to architects, engineers, and builders. We know you will to.

Each of the glossary terms above are construction related and learning their meaning will help you be a more complete Rescheck service provider.  Each item on the list is a relevant construction related term that you will encounter on most additions, alterations, and new construction projects that require a Rescheck from either Rescheck Web or Rescheck Desktop.  If you are considering what is the true cost of a Rescheck, how long does it take to do a Rescheck, or even if you can do the Rescheck yourself then these keywords are a great place to start.
