Upon becoming a BAGI member, builders and remodelers agree to adhere to The Quality Assurance Builder Standards. A commitment to the Quality Standards is a commitment to excellence, so when you choose to work with a BAGI member, you are working with the best of the best in our industry.
The Quality Assurance Builder Standards provide new homebuyers and remodeling homeowners a way to measure the quality of the project against an industry approved set of standards.
These standards have been developed by the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis (BAGI) as a service to new home and remodeling homeowners in the Central Indiana area – designed to help homeowners and builders communicate and understand each other’s expectations regarding the building or remodeling project.
The standards address the most prevalent issues that arise between the builder and the customer before the project, during the project, and, most importantly, after the project is completed. All too often it is the undefined expectations that create the majority of the problems encountered in the building and remodeling processes. The standards will help eliminate problems before the project even begins.
Prior to calling the builder, the homeowner should use their standards manual to determine if the particular concern is within the standards and then decide if a call to their builder is necessary. The builder should use these standards as the tool to determine what action is necessary to meet homeowner expectations created by the standards.
When you sign a contract with a BAGI builders, you have the opportunity to get electronic access to the complete standards book through a login provided by the builder.
The service period, as used in these standards, is defined as a period of one year from the date of closing and/or final acceptance of the project, unless otherwise agreed to by the builder and the homeowner and noted in the contract. On occasion, these guidelines refer to a period, such as the time of closing or the time of installation, other than the service period.
