How an Owner May Avoid Defective Work

The best way to avoid defective work is to take steps to prevent it from happening in the first place. There are a number of things that you can do to minimise the risk of defective work, including:

  • Carefully select the contractor
  • Obtain references from previous clients
  • Review the contractor’s license, qualifications and experience
  • Inspect the work regularly
  • Promptly report any defects to the contractor

By taking these steps, you can help to ensure that your construction project is completed on time and to your satisfaction.
