When constructing a new house, you certainly want to be sure of its construction quality. Although new materials and latest approach to architecture have remarkably improved the construction process, but it’s still not unusual to find homeowners complaining about workmanship and construction quality.

The consistent absence of an adequate real estate watchdog has given builders the liberty to deliver under par construction houses. Though all of them promise ‘A Grade’ (high quality) construction, but not many keep that promise.

To make the matters worse, most construction companies in Pakistan are offering ‘A Grade’ construction from 1,800 sq/m to 3,000 sq/m – something difficult to achieve in this budget. Unfortunately, most house owners decide for the lowest and ignore the construction quality because their aim is to keep project cost to minimum.

It surely gives them a house, but being a layman most of them unable to discern if the edifice is structurally sound. As a result, poor construction quality poses a grave threat to inhabitants and increases the maintenance budget because homeowners have to spend a hefty amount on repairs every year.

It is why they say, “The Taj Mahal would not have been so Beautiful & Everlasting if Shahjahan had asked for Quotation & decided for the Lowest.”

To avoid falling prey to manipulation, AmerAdnan Associates has shared a list of materials, fittings, etc. so you can have a clear idea what an ‘A Grade’ construction really is.

DPC – We lay a 3 inch horizontal DPC layer and 3 inch vertical DPC layer. The latter covers the sides of the base wall with Chips Plaster and a Chemical. Other contractors, however, use just one layer of DPC and evades to cover the sides of the base wall which eventually causes dampness.
