WHY IS QUALITY IMPORTANT?
How can I tell if I'm getting a quality job?
Everyone tells you they give good quality, but what does that mean? Quality is not just in the eye of the beholder, if you are careful to look for tell-tale signs of true quality work you can see it for yourself.
Of course quality can be linked to price, no one can make a castle from a pile of rubble, but at the same time, there is a basic quality standard to every job, regardless of the cost and materials used.
Always look at the details - that's where you will find true quality and pride of workmanship. The smaller details and finishing are always the first to go in a low quality or rushed job.
For example, is the job slightly incomplete? Are surfaces smooth, clean and even, are joints or edges aligned properly, are the corners neat and true? Is there an unexplained variance from one part of the project to another?
You can only appreciate good quality if you can see good quality.
