What My Builder Didn't Tell Me
"A truly memorable time writing this book whilst in New York City attending industry meetings and symposiums." — Howard Ryan
Corporate greed and the slashing of sub-contracting tradie's costs, has caused a major issue in residential construction with the finishing trades and the proposed warranty expectations, which is leading them all to tribunal and court claims more so than ever before.
By not understanding and/or acknowledging the wording in your contracts and scopes of works, will create unrealistic expectations and disputes where both parties make fools of themselves. Construction and Inspection planning is crucial to a successful and dispute free business. An example is, we don't tell a car manufacturer how to build their cars, they just sell them in their car yards so why should a consumer tell a builder or a home inspector, how to run their business? Forums and reality TV programmes are full of inconclusive statements based on what is being displayed, and the viewers are assuming this is the way it is to be done. IT IS NOT!
