Reviews

I have used the  guide lines on several occasions. When clients deplete their funds there are always workmanship complaints. The guide has been a strong asset to settle the complaints. -- Joe Peperone, Peperone Construction L.L.C, Metairie, LA

A great tool for critical measure guidance when communicating to employees, independent contractors, suppliers, retailers and homeowners.  -- Jim Trepinski, Fleetwood Homes, Waco, TX   

Codes and standards have no guidance on tolerances, fit and finish, and customer expectations vs. realistic construction results. The Residential Construction Performance Guidelines provides a basis to evaluate construction results and resolve disputes between contractors and owners. -- Charles Coones, Forensic Investigations and Technologies, Knoxville, Tennessee  

I give this book to all my home buyers prior to starting construction. This book is very valuable as a reference to proper construction practices for the homeowner and contractor. Without it you will end up doing more extensive repairs than necessary. -- Shane Chapman, Chapman Custom Homes L.C., Wichita, KS
