You're 100% right, JD. Installers need to raise their own bar when it comes to doing it right! You and I have certainly seen more than our share of failures, heh?

But if I'm understanding the problem, it's not if testing should be done, but who is responsible for covering the cost, as well as make sure all installers are playing on the same level playing field. This is where I see the communication breakdown between installers and GCs.

I'm often called in by installers to pre-construction meetings, only to find the GC is covering the cost. Sometimes the installer does.

If the GC is unable to commit to the task or the cost during the bidding process, the simplest solution is to include a disclaimer on all installer estimates to clarify whether or not testing is covered, along with a copy of the section from Div 3 or 9 (where ever they happen to include it). Throw it back at them and they'll figure it out.
