LOOK FOR THE "Q"
"Q" stands for the Quality Standards! Whether building or remodeling, quality is always essential. In fact, you'll want to monitor the quality of workmanship and materials throughout the completion of your project. The Home Builders Association of Illinois has made it easier. Our Quality Assurance Builder Standards program has the answers you're looking for. These guidelines were written so you and your contractor can talk about specifications, materials and expectations even before the construction begins. Then, you both can refer to the Standards as progress continues to make sure your project measures up. Clear, plain terms make it easy for you and your builder or remodeler to communicate about every aspect of the construction process, from roofing nails to foundation insulation.
