CHECKLIST: A beginner’s guide to our Quality-Assurance Services


Have you ever been in a situation where you’ve hired contractors to do work on your home or building, but you aren’t sure if the job was done to the proper standard? Are the contractors asking for your money regardless of your concerns to the contrary? Do you lack confidence that the work you’ve already paid for actually meets your needs and expectations?

If any of this sounds familiar, then this beginner’s guide to our Quality Assurance-Services is the perfect tool for you.

We’ve put this checklist together for you to explain the basics of what types of things our Quality-Assurance Services can actually cover, so you will know when to seek out a professional like Glenn, who always has your best interest in mind.

Quality-Assurance Services Checklist

  1. Development of new quality-assurance programs and services, including oversight of existing projects and follow-up inspections for completed work (before paying).
  2. Assessment and detailed reporting of findings and making recommendations based on our quality-assurance reviews.
  3. Ensuring that work provided by contractors and their subcontractors is consistent with contractual obligations and your expectations.
  4. Monitoring work of various personnel to ensure compliance with technical and contractual obligations.
  5. Non-conformance identification and quality control, as well as corrective action, as needed.
  6. Directing and/or contributing to quality-assurance management training sessions, meetings and investigations, as needed.
  7. Conducting audits, quality reporting and site reviews.
  8. Ensuring technical documents related to the project and quality assurance are upheld.
  9. Saving our clients from overspending.
  10. New garage, new deck, paint-job, renovation, new construction, new siding, etc.

We have been documenting deficiencies for stratas, homeowners, lawyers, property managers and many other projects for over 25 years, so you can count on us when it comes to making sure everything in your home, building or project is up to par.

Much of our construction-litigation work is needed when a project has suffered from a lack of oversight and the owner has had to turn to a lawyer and/or the courts.

If you are thinking of undergoing any project for your home, a building you manage or a construction project needing oversight, be sure to contact Glenn at Duxbury & Associates for all your quality-assurance needs.
