TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF BUILDERS
"This House Checks Out" Building Standard Initiative

In unprecedented action, the membership of the Texas Association of Builders—both volume and custom builders, subcontractors, suppliers and providers of professional services—came together to fund the Building Standards Task Force in 2002.  The goals of the Task Force were (1) to create a mechanism wherein both the consumer and the homebuilder are treated fairly to resolve differences through an equitable dispute resolution process rather than be tied up in costly litigation for years; and (2) to create residential building guidelines for the State of Texas without putting in place more governmental red tape that results in bureaucratic boondoggles.
