New Home Construction Quality Check


Worried about the construction quality of your new home? You don’t have to because there visible signs which you only need to check to determine the construction quality of the project and as homebuyers, you must be aware of the signs and loopholes of any residential project before buying your new home.

The simplest thing that you can do is to go on field visits to the project site, talk to brokers, do online research, or consult an architect to safeguard any structural defects.

It is important to observe any cracks in the building as it is a sign of a weak foundation.  Even minor cracks in the walls reflect the substandard quality of materials used for construction. You can also check the quality of the concrete mix used in the construction by driving a nail into the walls since the strength of the concrete mix or the grade of concrete and concrete-sand ratio are crucial.  Also, look out for the quality of paint on the walls.  In addition to enhancing visual appeal, good paint on the walls and wooden surfaces prolongs their life. Cheap paint, on the other hand, results in poor finishing and reduces durability. This also means that walls might need to be painted again quickly.

Another thing is to make sure that the kitchen and bathroom fixtures are in good condition and that the floor of the bathroom are even.  Tiles used in the bathroom and kitchen are a good indicator of the overall quality of construction.  Doors should not make a creaking noise while opening, and keep an eye on door handles, electrical fittings and window latches.

Most of the time, homebuyers neglect to see the small details of a home not knowing that these minute details are the indicators of the construction quality.  Take time to check these if you want your new home to last a lifetime.
