    Default Defect

    Since I need to prepare a defect list to a project contractor in final stage, but I have a question on the following sentences which is correct / suitable to present the defect item. I would be grateful if someone can help to explain the meaning and usage of the following sentences.

    1.) Serious stained granite to be rectified

    2.) Serious stained granite shall be rectified

    Default Re: Defect

    Either is fine, but use "seriously" instead of "serious".

    Both mean the same - that the contractor is to remove and replace, or is to somehow clean, any granite [facing/flooring] which is seriously stained.

    The problem that will arise is deciding what "seriously stained" means.
