Residential Construction Performance Guidelines—Contractor Reference is a must-have for every builder and remodeler.

"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
