Home Improvement Expert Checklists are designed to make it easy to bring customers high-quality work. Using the checklists in tandem with your standard contractual language allows both you and the customer transparency about what the work will or will not involve. As a bonus, both you and they get a straightforward checklist to make sure all elements of the work are delivered to an independently established standard.
The Home Improvement Expert checklists were designed with input from top experts in the residential construction world and are designed to provide broad guidance on what will deliver the highest quality product for the customer. Contractors are encouraged to modify elements of the checklist to align with local building codes, best practices, and environmental conditions.
The Department of Energy uses information from the annual reports to keep track of the usability and impact of Home Improvement Expert and determine if any subjects merit new checklists.
