Every home buyer dream of owning a qualitative property as home buying itself is a big thing, especially in India. Thus, the prospects double-check the land, location and other necessary things before finalizing a home deal.
As a prospect you might take care of the wall paint color, quality of wash basin being fixed in the kitchen area and so on. But, many home buyers miss out the most important thing that directly impacts the life of a housing structure.
Here we are talking about the primary thing which is the quality check of an under construction housing project. Now, you must be wondering how one can check the material quality?
Take These Points into Consideration to Inspect Material Quality:
- Soil Investigation –
This test is done prior to laying the foundation stone of a housing project. Every developer/builder has to get the soil test done by the Authorities. The Black Cotton Soil and Clay-rich Soil are the two soils on which a housing project must not be built. Also, you can ask the builder to showcase the soil test report in order to check the construction quality of a home.
- Safety Check –
Today, most of the high-rise buildings are being constructed with earthquake resistance material. Thus, you must also consult an architect and know the minute details of the building structure. Another reason to consult this professional is to know better about the fire exit, pipeline and power supply techniques in the buildings. So, get this security check done for the safety of your family.
- Introspect the Wall Thickness –
Here is the trick. You might not know the wall thickness but you can check its quality. The first way to do a quality check of a wall is to try making a hole in the wall by using a key. In case, you get successful in making a hole then it’s proven that the developer/builder is not using a good quality material in the construction of the residential project. The second way to check the same is by taping/knocking the wall. The volume of a wall’s sound lets you know the construction quality.
- Quality Check for Plaster & Paints –
The roughness and the cracks emerging in the wall after plastering and painting directly point out the use of bad quality material in the construction of a housing property.
- Check Elevators/Lifts –
Make sure you check the working condition of these two amenities as they plays a crucial role in climbing up and down particularly in the high-rise apartments.
These five points can save you from buying property made from the low-quality material. So, get a quality check done before sealing a home buying deal.
