The Builder Has Not Done A Good Job Or It Is Poor Quality work. What Can I Do?

A robust building contract will set out the terms and state how the workmanship has to be carried out by the builder. In particular, the specification will cover the type of contract to be used. The performance criteria of the asset, the description of the materials to be used and methods of installation. The contract should also set criteria in design of work, which standards are applicable. This means how they should be executed, quality of the systems and products to be used. This is ensure no poor quality work by a builder is left.

Top Tip: Where there is no standard stated, then one adopts the best practice. This is as described in national British Standards.
