It would be a good idea to check up on the quality of construction before you go in for a particular project. Let the following points guide you:

You need to check up on the reputation of the “promoter”, “contractor” and “architect” of the construction. Visit other projects by them. Try to find problems and faults in their construction by talking to people.

One of the most important criteria is the cement being used in the construction. Try to check up often, though surprise visits about the type of cement being used. Ask the builder about this? Ask him to explain why he feels the particular cement being used is the best…

Check up on the thickness of the external walls. If they are 6-inches walls, it is not a very stable construction. A 9-inch wall is always better.
